    Hi,

    Thanks for your response,

    Attached below is the latest response I have received from Creative. They state that the drivers work okay but even when I was using the latest drivers from their website these did not work correctly with Windows 8, the Creative forums are also full of complaints regarding poor drivers etc. I have therefore decided to go back to using the Realtek onboard sound chip for the time being until I find sound card that is specifically designed for Windows 8.

    'Pertaining to the file date in the drivers set, it is expected that some binaries are dated as far back as 2008. The reasoning behind this is that the drivers being used were working properly.

    At this time there is no technical requirement to amend these drivers, if at a later date a reason arises it would be addressed accordingly. The driver date need not be changed as well, as the date provides continuity with in the driver development process.'

    I think that, at this point in time, the best thing to do is to do without the Creative card. Remember that the mobo is likely reaching it's End Of Life (EOL) cycle also - so investing in new equipment for this board is probably not a good idea .

    Hi,
    Thanks for your response,

    I have today updated to a newer version of Logitech drivers for the G19 keyboard, and wondered if you could please take a look the attached logs to see if any of old drivers have now been updated? Also would you be able to check the logs to see if there are still any Creative drivers left on the system?

    Many thanks,

    Sorry for the delay - work has gotten real busy, so I'm putting in extra hours.

    The reports are incomplete - please let the report program run for at least 15 minutes (or until it says it's done).

    I was only able to find two Creative drivers - but don't have any dates for them.

    Code:
    ha20x2k     Creative 20X HAL Driver    c:\windows\system32\drivers\ha20x2k.sys     Kernel Driver    No    Manual    Stopped    OK    Normal    No    No
    Code:
    mbwrp64     1.0.0.200    81.13 KB (83,072 bytes)    12/02/2013 13:34    Creative  Technology Ltd.    c:\windows\system32\mbwrp64.dll

    Hi,

    Thanks for your response and no worries about the delay.

    I have attached a new set of logs which said completed okay. I have now done away with the Creative Sound Card and have been trying to remove any left over traces of the drivers from the system. Please can you advise which is the best way to delete the drivers that are still showing for the sound card? Also Logitech have released a new version of Setpoint and I wondered if you would please be able to check the latest attached logs to see if any of the older Logitech drivers have now been updated?



    Many thanks for your continued help.

    There's no dates on the drivers in these reports. But the Logitech installation has .exe's and .dll's that all date from 2013 - so it's safe to presume that the drivers are the most updated available.

    As for removing drivers - I don't suggest you remove anything manually unless you're still having BSOD's. If the Creative drivers show up in the BSOD analysis - then I'll make suggestions on how to remove it/them safely.
