Hi to my family at BleepingComputer !!
I have a Compaq DeskPro EX with Windows 2000 on it.
The sound wouldn't sound right . All the sound comming out of the speakers was fast and sounded like all the music and words came from a Chipmonks cd.
So, I looked up an UPDATE driver file for the audio called WDM_A406.exe and downloaded it to the desktop. I opened it up and it loaded great. Restarted the computer and thats where the fun has begun. All it does in regular mode is Blue screens. It will go into SAFE MODE just fine.
I selected.....( GO TO LAST GOOD KNOWN CONFIGURATION ), but that didn't help any.
How do I get that driver package file off the computer so it will quit blue screening ?
I feel like I've really messed it up this time.
Any and all help will be very much appreciated !!!

OK.....put out the fire, I fixed it. I went into ADD/REMOVE Programs and there it was. I simply removed it and the computer is fine now. It still sounds like the chipmonks when a song is played but I don't want to go through that driver mess again. !

Are you sure you have the correct driver? Where did you download it from?
What is the entire model number of the unit?

Thanks for you reply !
I downloaded the file from this link:
http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/downlo...mp;DownTypeID=3
The serial number for the computer is 6110FR4ZB702
Model is Compaq Deskpro EX
I was looking for the driver for the AC97 Audio A4.06
The computer still sounds like the Chipmonks. Could the audio card be bad ?

Compaq DeskPro EX


If at all possible, it is best to download from the manufacturer's support site
Compaq shows 2 different drivers:
Creative Labs:

or the generic (probably yours):
http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechS...PSG_I9563-29416


Nowhere did I find Realtek Why do you say it's Realtek?

I tried those 2 websites. The one file said that no device was found. The other setup file didn't do anything when we opened it up. I am getting a SoundBlaster card to put in it. Do you think that would work ?
