Way back on Aug. 12, I had an audio problem (I couldn't find the a3d.dll file that I needed for my speakers to work (this was after re-installing Windows due to a BSoD). I installed Sound Blaster Live!'s LiveDrvUni-Pack (English) file, which discolored my computer. I restored my settings, found the right .dll file, and all was well until two days ago when I booted up my computer to find the same discoloration. It happened again tonight, and again I restored it. What should I do if it happens again?

I'm using a Dell Opti-Plex GX 260.

What did you use to "restore" your files?

Go to your device manager and look to see if there are any yellow or red warning icons in any section, but particularly graphics adapters.

If there are, update the drivers.

I used System Restore found in System Tools.
