funny you say that, I was going to say "followed each step to the T" but just kept it short.
So yes I already have done that.
Right now, I am trying:
uninstall driver, reboot
uninstall software via revo, deleting residual files, reboot
deleting all items in %temp%, reboot
installing software, reboot
installing patch, reboot
installing driver package, reboot
starting software and plugging in
will post if any changes.
