Usbaudio.sys in Vista fails to set up usb sound adapter

Acer Aspire 9300, AMD Turion 64, 1.6GHz, 4 GB DDR2.

This problem stops me from using Speech Recognition (no working mic):

Vista tries to set up an Andrea or Parrott usb sound adapter (half duplex), identifies it as an Audio Device, but in the end fails to set it up (yellow triangle+?).

The same machine, running WinXP sets up these devices without a hitch. I've tried replacing usbaudio.sys in Vista with the same file from XP, but no joy. I've tried updating my AC'97 drivers, but that didn't work. Can someone help?

    AMD Turion 64x2 Processor Upgrade Problem


    Yes it's the BIOS, which holds a list of supported CPUs (with the right min/max settings for Vcore, FSB, multiplier (or HyperTransport as it's called for AMD chips), etc.). When you put in a newer unrecognized CPU, it either runs at a failsafe (very slow) setting or won't boot at all.

    The only solution is to flash a newer BIOS version which supports the CPU. I searched the Acer website and found the newest BIOS version 3315 (dated 2008-12, which is pretty new imho), which you can download (including the required flash software) here: http://global-download.acer.com/GDFiles/BIOS/BIOS/BIOS_3315.zip?acerid=633643256207419447&Step1=Notebook&Step2=Aspire&Step3=Aspire 5050&OS=V10&LC=nl&SC=EMEA_18

    Perhaps you already have this BIOS version and I'm not sure wether your new CPU is supported by this BIOS, but you might give it a try.

    Please note that flashing your BIOS might fail & brick the laptop and is at your own risk, but when following the instructions carefully, it's only a very small chance things go wrong. I've done it a dozen times without any problem ...
