The problem may be the fact that you have two drivers loaded simultaneously. Try removing each one separately, rebooting your computer and using the other one to see if that fixes the problem.
Depending on what operating system (OS) you are using, you will need to go into the Control Panel and select "Add or Remove Programs" to remove the driver.
If you are not able to remove it that way, you can restore your computer to an earlier configuration using the Restore command. Note: buttons you click on are shown here in UPPERCASE.
If you're using Windows XP, click START, then RUN and type the following, without the quote marks:
then click OK.
On the "Welcome to System Restore" page, click "Restore my computer to an earlier time" (if it's not already selected) and click NEXT.
On the "Select a Restore Point" page, click the system checkpoint, which should be a date earlier than when you first loaded the driver(s). In the "On this list select the restore point" area, click an entry that is named "Guided Help (Registry Backup)", and then click NEXT. If a "System Restore" message appears that lists configuration changes that System Restore will make, click OK.
On the "Confirm Restore Point Selection" page, click NEXT. System Restore then restores the previous Windows XP configuration and restarts the computer. Log on. When the "System Restore confirmation" page appears, click OK.
You can use the System Restore command to undo many different problems caused by loading programs, drivers, etc. I believe the procedure is similar if you are using Vista or Windows 7, but the window names may not be exactly the same.
I hope this helps.
