Hello The Howling Wolves,
Thanks for joining the discussion. You guys are great. I did a windows auto update and it said that the driver
was correct. I've had a huge amount of problems with issues like this, that have turned out to be program incompatibility. I mean like 10 times. I think I am getting too cocky, and trying programs that say they are completely compatible and they aren't. If the problem can not be identified, the only solution is a system image restore. So far it is the only thing that helps, or removing the offending program. Shame I don't know how long this has been going on. It doesn't show up in the Event Viewer Administrative Events. Fingers crossed!!
Appreciate your ideas.
