Win Vista update keeps screwing up my sound drivers?!
show user profile  zenonithus
every time windows vista does an update my computer restarts with no sound coming from the speakers. headphone sound still works though.

the only way for me to fix it is to re-install my sound driver which can get anoying everyday :(

has anybody here heard of this problem or can suggest how I can stop the update from installing over my sound drivers each time?

start > settings > control panel > windows update > change settings > "check for updates but let me choose whether to download & install them" (check this). When you next get informed about updates, uncheck the box next to your sound drivers

At some point my usb headphones stopped working in certain USB ports, I had to uninstall, and then reinstall the latest soundcard drivers (Realtek onboard). Uninstalling being the important part. Simply reinstalling was doing nothing, I have a sneaking suspicion Vista protecting the sound drivers and was doing the "I'll let you do what you think you're doing, but really you're just wasting your time". I've had this with serveral things, mainly game installations where you MUST install to program files. I had a folder in C:/ that had all my games installed on it. Apparently ALL applications must be installed in Program files or it screws up the vista permissions.
It all has to do with the you may be Admin, but you're not really Admin bullshit. I enabled the hidden admin account to delete some folders windows had decided needed to be protected, even using that account it wouldn't let me. So I just put the harddrive in another PC running Win2k and deleted the bloodly things.

thanks donvella. I figured there had to be something like that around, just too vista noob to know about it ;)

Sypher-5: I'm not sure what you mean, but all of my games and even my steam are installed to my E: drive in a "Games" folder and they seem to work fine.
