Problem is, whenever my computer gets restarted, right after I log in, it says "detecting unknown hardare device" or something like that, and right after, it saiys blahblah blah has caused an error, and lbahblahblah will now close. I then click on "ok" or "close" and my system just sits there. The only way to boot up is to go into safe mode, and do an old system restore. This happened right after I installed my audigy 2, but that works. So how do I get rid of the hardware auto-detect or just fix the problem? thanks, greg
