Problems with Sound Card/Speakers & Illegal Op.

  gplatt2000 11:54 01 Jun 2003

My speakers werent working so I installed a driver for my soundcard. However, when I play music the voices are very quite and delayed with an echo, and other parts missing (eg piano)and the whole track is very very quiet.And now when I go into my computer and try opening C drive or anything it says Windows has performed an illegal Operation. In details it says there was a protection error at 'CM8330.drv' - this isthe soundcard driver I just installed! And when I try deleting the driver it wont let me because 'it is in use by Windows'. Any help much appreciated, gavin

Try booting into safemode and delete the file from there. Then do a reinstall of the drivers.

Thanks a lot. Should this solve all the problems?
