Win2000 Pro - Aureal Vortex SG1500.

Everytime I reboot, the sound card fails.

I use Device Manager, Update Driver. It re-installs the same driver, then works until the next time I reboot.

My modem is Aureal Vortex SG1500. The driver is wdma_aur.inf.


Can I make a registry key that I click to update the driver without going through the Device Manager process?

This one is easy. Aureal departed years ago.

And left us with so-so drivers. The company also departed without divulging programming information so drivers could be made or fixed.

Given the situation the company left us in, I'd install a supported card.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
