Automatic driver installation

Hello,

I bought an X-fi Xtreme Gaming sound card today, and I installed the drivers, but they didn't work. It turns out that windows(Vista Home Premium) is automatically installing its own drivers for the card, which don't work. I turned off the windows update driver function in the system tab, but the OS is still installing its own drivers for the card.

Does anyone know if it's possible to completely turn off automatic driver installation?

Application process or service? Not sure. Usually you can stop that auto install of driver in the toolbar where it appears that its installing. Just cancel it out when it tries to install.

I think that is plug and play - when you have the card in it automatically tries to install the drivers based off that service?

I think you first have to install the audio drivers from the cd before you let windows install drivers. That way, it uses the creative drivers.

Otherwise, you could try to manually update the drivers and point towards the cd for the source path.

Aye, that was looking to be the problem, but I couldn't cancel it when it was in the toolbar. At least, I *thought* that was the problem. After I took out the card and put it back in, it worked again, so I probably just screwed up on inserting it. -_-

Thanks for the help though, everyone :)
