I just noticed something while I was playing around in Device Manager.
I have no "Sound, Audio, Game Controller" menu anymore, but I do have a "Multimedia Audio Controller" underneath "Other Devices". Right-clicking and bringing up the properties, I noticed that under Location, it says PCI bus 1, device 0, function 0.
Because I realized that it's a PCI card, the PCI bus 1 thing kind of made me think twice. Every time I've restarted, I get the popup that Windows needs to find the driver. Is all this going on because I haven't physically removed the old soundcard from the PCI slot? I always thought that I could have on-board sound and a dedicated sound card and I could just switch between the two, but maybe not?
Edit - Wow. That actually did it. I just took the card out, and when it rebooted, everything was normal. Device Manager shows Realtek HD Audio now. I guess I should re-install SP2, huh?
Thanks for your quick help tonight.
