[rant] updating drivers :(
« on: July 23, 2008, 05:20:08 PM »
after a crash which ms helpfully(?) suggested may be to do with sounds,
I go to control panel "Sounds & Audio devices"
find driver tab for sounds under hardware,
click "update driver"
get a wizard, option to connect to windows update, nothing helpful there (what do they have to do with my sound card?)
- how am I supposed to go from here  :-\

it's no wonder that I spent 4 years without sounds on my last computer *
I dont know if this a microsoft interface problem or a problem with my sound card software -terratec- appalling website as I recall but I'll have to go there next in spite of downloading all their software last time & starting anything I could find & looking for a simple UPDATE button
[grumpyguts=me - should just go off to bed :-[]

I tell ye, if I ever got involved in working with software/computers, where I'd like to work most would be with interface but I suspect if I worked in a large company I'd die from lack of job satisfaction

* thanks to Brandon for resolving that for me, but, there comes a time when you (I) gotta stand up on (my) own two feet & say wtf or something along those lines
