Hi all

I wanted to know how I would be able to disable or enable a sound card (the same effect achived by clicking disable in device manager)? As posted in another thread it freezes up the computer...with using a command line or even better put it in a batch file so that I can make it whenever I wanted it to

or if it is not possible is it possible to get older sound version of sound drivers? Realtek HD Audio

Disabling/enabling the sound can be done via left clicking the speaker in the notification area of the taskbar.

For drivers -

If the sound card freezes the computer, then you might have a bad copy of the driver.
Fixing this kind of problem is a two step process.
1. Download/install/run (FREE)
This will clean up your temp folders and registry.

2. Download/install/run (FREE)
Run it from the Safe mode (F8) to delete the existing sound drivers before installing the new drivers.

That doesn't disable the driver does it, it just disables individual componments. I tried it, it still freezes. I need a simple command line that will completely stop the driver or even make it not load
