Windows successfully loaded the device driver for this hardware but cannot find the hardware device. (Code 41)
Also, this is probably relevant: Nothing else has the yellow sign next to it, except for an item under "Sound, video, and game controllers" called "Unknown device". This is its device status:
The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28)
To reinstall the drivers for this device, click Reinstall Driver.
Well, while I was writing this I decided to click "Reinstall Driver". A wizard came up which did the installation for me (I don't know where it got the driver from), and then told me that it had finished installing the software for Microsoft Kernel Acoustic Echo Canceller. Now the device has a new status:
Currently, this hardware device is not connected to the computer. (Code 45)
To fix this problem, reconnect this hardware device to the computer.
Now the "Microsoft Kernel Acoustic Echo Canceller" is not showing up in the Device Manager. Does this have something to do with my CD drives not working? And I've attached my DxDiag.txt file, if that's any help.
Thanks you in advanced for the help. I'll be really grateful.
