Hopefully someone on here can kindly help with a problem that is driving me slowly insane!
I bought a Laptop about a month ago, and last week when I turned it on I noticed the sound wasn't working.
In Device Manager I noticed there was a yellow "!" next to "Vinyl AC97 Codec Combo Driver (WDM)" and the message "Code 10 - the Device Could not start"
When I uninstall it, and restart the laptop Windows finds the new hardware and I can install the drivers rom the support cd I got with the laptop, and all is well again.
Until I power off the laptop and turn it on again, then the exact same situation occurs
Any idea exactly what I need to do? I have tried everything I can think of including downloading and installing Bios/Sound drivers from the Laptop manufacturer's website (http://www.medion.co.uk)
When I install the correct drivers and choose "restart computer" it restarts with working Audio, it is when I actually power off completely and reboot that makes the problem happen again
thanks in advance
