Multi-Media Audio Problem

So first of all I have just rolled back my Operating System from Windows 8 to Windows 7 simply because of windows 8 lack of support for AMD Radeon HD 7770 Ghz edition, I was getting driver issues all the time and then I was get frequent blue screens, so yeah I enjoy Windows 7 a lot so it seemed practical to revert back (90% of Toms-hardware would also agree).

Well I had bad onboard issues with Asus M5A97 Evo 2.0 board a while back the 7.0 onboard just crapped out and wouldn't work so I bought a cheap £10 C-Media PCIe sound card, for the cheap price its brilliant I must say, good audio quality and no issues with drivers until now, first of all when I was on Windows 8 I didn't and still don't have a CD ROM drive because they're kind of obsolete and the PCIe card came with a mini CD so I used my other computer with the CD Drive and went on the disk and copied the driver files via DropBox and then downloaded them on my main RIG not installation issues but with Windows 7 I keep getting this error when I try to install

And then I get this error afterwards: http://gyazo.com/4f3672d4c049cbe19c7198913a436577

So basically it's an endless cycle of waiting because the driver program is waiting for the audio driver to be ready and the windows audio driver is just fucking up.

Also this error is creeping up: http://gyazo.com/f2cfeaa37d0a841b1b67bd4f9bdce8f8

I think the issue is that I haven't even installed any Windows updates yet but meh just thought I would write this post to you guys, I will try and install them now and see if that works, I will reply with an update via the comments

Thanks

I would probably suggest reinstalling win7 fresh would be worth more your time then trying to recoup the experience you had before win8. Maybe :)

No I reverted back to windows 7 because Windows 8 is of course a piece of shit and has no lack of support and compatibility with my motherboard nor graphics card.
