Win 7 32b Ultimate SP1

Dear Yowanvista,
I looked at the drivers. cwawdm.sys is the Crystal driver for the soundboard. Old, and not upgradable. But, this driver is working Ok in my two other Dell 8200 Inspirons. The same goes for the other driver, el90Xbc5.SYS. This driver is for the 3Com wired network card. As I use the wireless connection I disabled the network card. But also for this card the same story goes: in the other Dells it gives no problem.

Dear Yowanvista,
I also removed the modem. Who needs a modem these days?
