Where can I check which chipset I have? Neither Speccy nor HWINFO gave me a model name, though I found out from Speccy that I'm indeed dealing with a C-media device. It says the Genesis headset uses a C-media chipset. But it's not the only device that produces the problem in audiodg, so I'm not sure which device should I apply this driver to.

Also, the website won't let me DL anything, it asks me for some kind of login and password.

While working on this problem, you should download a current Windows 7 ISO that includes SP1 so if necessary, you can do a Repair Install without having to uninstall SP1 (and all the updates on top of it, like 190 or so).

See here: Download Windows 7 ISOs, Legally and for Free

I'm really inclined to do that actually. The issue is relatively minor, but my system could probably use fixing that way. Thing is - I need a particular localized version of the system, it doesn't let an English version install on top of it. I've tried :P Thanks anyway

EDIT: Nvm, I think I actually found a suitable ISO. So my question now is: does a repair-reinstall tamper in any way with the contents of Program Files?

Yeah, that write-up was no help at all. I've tried many things already and spent over 10 hours trying to fix this, basic stuff like this won't be of much help.

I know, I am struggling with it for months now, have no sound, only with external speakers. I have read every article under the sun about this Audiodg.exe. I think my problem is more than one unfortunately, cannot help you I'm afraid.

Good luck with finding your solution

PS; been reading here and there that sound is the black sheep if windows 7

A Repair install will leave "MOST" of your installed programs alone, but probably not all. I've read that sometimes Microsoft Office needs to be reinstalled. Also your anti-virus.

You're best bet is to do a full image backup to an external hard drive before the repair install. That way you can always get back to where you are now if serious problems occur.

Yep! A repair-reinstall of Windows 7 fixed this problem for me. I'm very glad.

Also, it looks like practically everything from my system from before the reinstall was preserved - I see no difference in functionality at all. The only downside is that the reinstall took easily like 5 hours or so.
