You should have one drive per device. How many sound devices do you have?

You could take a screen shot of the sound tab in device manager and upload it to us.

It does. If I were you I would remove them all then reboot. Windows will probably re-install the one you need.

Anyone ever figured out why Nvidia drivers insist on installing 4 instances of the audio device for their cards with built in audio?
