I wanted to uninstall a sound driver on dell 8500 laptop to install the Realtek provided driver (found from this forum) only to find out that windows was kind enough to restore my old drivers (SigmaTel) for me to uhh get messed up with. Now I am getting random beeping noises from my bass, and it gets quite annoying as I cannot tell when it's coming and things like that... I'm guessing its a driver conflict and was wondering if anyone knew how to remove a driver COMPLETELY from a system. oh and by "completely," I mean like when I click "update driver" in the devices panel, it will not show up there... (I noticed that many drivers still show up, and think I read something about windows saving the old drivers... ) help the noob!!
