Multimedia Audio controller for XP
When using Add/New Hardware to install new audio driver if fails
with: The name is already in use as either a service name or a
service display name. The device properties dialogue says: The
drivers for this device are not installed (Code 28).
I am unable to find a service "Multimedia Audio Controller" (assuming
this is the name it is complaining about!). The driver is the SiS
7012 Audio Driver. Fault started after Windows Update tried to
install C-Media AC97 Audio Driver (since deleyed).
How do I find the "Duplicate Service" or overcome the problem.
Add hardware is basically a big PITA, and should probably be extincted.
I'm assuming that your sound hardware is bundled on you mobo and it is
not listed in Device Manager.
Go into you BIOS and disable it, and boot into Windows. Then Reboot and
enable it, and boot into Windows. You shoulc then either get the
dialogue box to install the drivers, or it should be listed in your
Device Manager, then right click on it and install drivers from there.
And NEVER, EVER install drivers through Windows and/or Automatic Update
again! And get you drivers from your OEM, or from the Device
"Trustworthy Computing" is only another example of an Oxymoron!
