I have just downloaded a driver for my sound card from windows update,
because my sound card has never actually worked, but now the driver is the
correct one, but the device doesn't start. I get error code 10. I've tried
everything in the windows troubleshooter, but I have no idea what to do. ANy
help would be greatly appreciated.

ONE Thing: I never trust any driver downloads from Microsoft Windows
Updates. Everytime I tries, my XP would not start back up correctly. An I
also found that most drivers are usually "way out of date". Always get the
latest drivers from the hardware manufacturer's web site directly.

Um Firstly, I wouldn't let WU, update hardware drivers on my computer. I
always go to the mobo/device manufacturer to do these updates. That
said, try uninstalling the c-media device in device manager, re-boot,
and let Windows reload the drivers.
Best,

Since the audio has never worked, have you tried the motherboard
manufacturer to see if there are any BIOS updates or AC97 drivers available?
