My XP based computer shows an error message each time it boots.

Message is " Rundll" " Error loading cmicnfg.cpl" "The module could
not be found"

I have no idea what it means - any help ?

This should help, seems to be a problem with C-media audio driver.

Thanks for reply. How do I backup the registry ?

Thanks for reply. How do I backup the registry ? Two ways:

1 using system restore, this backs up the reg as well as the system files
or
2. Export/save the reg.

1> System restore, click start/All Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore - when it opens select create a restore point, and follow through.
or
2> click start/run, type in regedit click on file/export, call it something, and export/save the reg to another location.

Personally I feel system restore would be better, because if something mucks up and your computer wont boot into windows, its easier to run restore than try and get into regedit to replace the exported file.

It looks like the file at Http://ekiis.com/Freesoft/binary/remove11.zip has been removed some time ago. Any substitutes ?

Not getting anywhere fast !

Could I simply put the XP Operating System disk in and reinstall windows, but only the operating system of course, leaving my data intact.

As in my last post (above) Http://ekiis.com/Freesoft/binary/remove11.zip is no longer available, sort of puts a stopper on things.

You could do a repair install if you wanted, but I'd be a little surprised if it worked. How to do a repair install (http://pcsupport.about.com/od/operatingsystems/ss/instxprepair1.htm) - with pictures.

The problem appears to be with the c-media Audio driver. This is NOT a default driver in XP - doing a repair install will only repair/replace the drivers / system files in XP.

Have a read of This forum (http://forums.techarena.in/windows-xp-support/187083.htm) #3 & 6 -- its almost the same as the other link posted above, just a bit more manual operations.


Not getting anywhere fast ! What exactly do you mean by that ??? Do you mean it cant be done (some sort of error) OR you not to sure how to do it ?

I mean no disrespect here :)- I have no idea of your skill level - but if you are unsure about following those or any instructions, then I'd suggest you take the PC to someone who does know what they are doing.

I have seen MANY times people "fiddle around" when they should have backed out - then it takes more work to repair damage.

Mucking a system up is easy ;) - fixing peoples "mistakes" it can be a bloody nightmare - and I do this for a living :nerd:

Only that the file required (http://ekiis.com/Freesoft/binary/remove11.zip) does not seem to be available to remove no longer required entries from control panel/add,remove.

Most of the rest of the procedure has been done. Now just need to be able to remove the C-media entry from control panel add/Remove, which is what ekiis seemingly does. Certainly using the remove function in Control panel will not remove it. And I guess nothing is going to change untill C-media is removed.

But I take your point that reinstalling Windows would achieve little.

Ok easy enough - Add/Remove Programs section only - remove entry -- follow instructions from This Microsoft Support (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314481) Number 6 & 7 read very carefully.

This is one reason for doing a system restore or backup Reg as described earlier. Easier to do it FIRST than go :mad: *$%^%(@* Wrong key.
