    Rollback is unclickable and update just endlessly searches...how long is it supposed to take? I chose the search online for updates option.

    Are you using "Browse my computer" then "Let me pick from a list on my computer" it should be almost immediate.

    Oh, I wasn't using that option. Will try that once I can get to my PC again. I'll update here, but either way thanks for the assistance thus far.

    Your welcome. Can I give you a little advice? You do not NEED to update any drivers on a PC except for your graphics card, and only if you play graphics intensive games. The changes are usually minimal and you don't get any new functions. The changes are usually for new products the come out on the market, for example the new 4K screen for your video card or corrections for a specific game. for sound it was when HDMI came out and corections for the different dolby (5.1 7.1 etc). As you see updating drivers can actually break something.

    If you just want to use an EQ or boost bass look at this zip I made with windows steps recorder. Microsoft gives us the tools we need without really needing to use 3rd party software. Problem is you usually have to find it yourself, because they don't advertise the really useful stuff just the "In" crap.
