Cannot Uninstall Device Driver

Wednesday, April 27, 2011

Maybe some of you ever experience the circumstance where it hard to uninstall the computer device’s driver from Windows Device Manager. This problem also happen to me recently. The error message below appeared on the screen when I tried to uninstall the High Definition Audio Driver from Acer laptop that run Windows XP Professional.
