    The default windows driver will work just fine. Try running this diagnostic scan.

    If that doesn't help, try deleting the upper and lower filters in the registry.
  3. Hi;

    i went to the site you recommended, followed to instructions in regedit . there was not a high or low filter listed. Any other ideas?
  4. Did you run the diagnostic scan from the first link?
