Windows 7: "HD Audio" drivers keep installing - disabling my recording sound card

"HD Audio" drivers keep installing - disabling my recording sound card

My motherboard has on board audio which I disabled in my bios in order to use my recording sound card. This worked flawlessly for over 2 years. Then sometime last year Windows installed my "Missing HD Audio Driver" which disabled all sound until i enabled the on board sound in the bios again, this of course meant i couldnt use my recording card.

All Windows and driver updates have been turned off, it still installs.


After many attempts at fixes i found online I gave up until more recently when i reformatted the computer and got it working. Then yesterday it started again. I have no idea what to do about it but im hoping that with a year having passed, maybe people have figured this out.

This really did not need to be moved, as it is not specifically an audio problem. It is an issue with windows installing drivers when its not supposed to.
