Recently performed a full recovery. Device manager says that integrated audio and video drivers are not installed and asks if I want to reinstall. Computer can not find them on hard drive or OEM restore disc. Downloaded drivers from E-Machine Support and burned disc and attempted install. Computer tells me driver file already exists and do I want to overwrite with new driver files. Answering yes made no difference, answering no makes no difference. No matter what path or option I take I get this message "specified location contains no driver information". Install hardware wizard recommended various other drivers found on hard drive but none would work. E-Machine support recommended unistalling drivers that harware wizard found then attempt another full recovery. I did with same results but this time my computer tells me there is no audio or video hardware connected and therefore no drivers are needed. Should I take the computer out back and introduce it to a 12 gauge shotgun?

Re: audio and video drivers
When you are in the device manager have the computer search for new hardware and see if the devices show up. As for the drivers the ones off the manufacturer website should definitely run the hardware.
Before you search for hardware in windows get into bios and make sure the devices are enabled. If the devices are enabled and the drivers off the man. website do not work the shotgun will. Well it will make you feel better but your video and sound won't work

You don't have to delete legacy drivers because reinstalling your audio driver will update it. Right click your audio software the one you found in the Device Manager and update it. It will find your installation cd of your system drivers. Else, manually install the audio driver.
