Getting failed downloaded updates to re-attempt an install
Hi,

I have re-installed Win 7 on my PC several times for one reason or another.
Not for any major problems - simply to get better defrag - to reset the
registry etc.

I have an on-board RealTek Hi Def sound card.

A number of times, windows live update has downloaded and installed the
updated driver for this on-board sound, without any problems.
However, after my recent install, WIN 7 downloaded and attempted to install
the update - but for some reason this time, it was a failure.

I know the driver works and that my realtek on-board sound works, as I have
used them a good few times before.

MY PROBLEM is this.

When I look at the 'Review Windows UpDate History' , I discover this line ,
from
which I copy the details below.

========================================
Realtek - Network - Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller

Installation date: ‎16/‎02/‎2010 19:00

Installation status: Failed

Error details: Code 80070005

Update type: Optional

Realtek Network software update released in December, 2009

==============================================

Ok,
So since I know it works - I want to re-install it right?

Accept! I cannot find anywhere in the Windows update section of the control
panel HOW TO DO THIS!!??

When I run 'CHECK FOR UPDATES' I simply get 'Windows up to date' despite
the fact that this very important driver isn't installed!

HOw do I get it to re-install?

First of all, NEVER install hardware drivers issued by Microsoft unless they
pertain to Microsoft hardware. Head to Realtek's site and download and
install the latest drivers for your chip Problem solved. The fact that
you're constantly redoing your OS tells me your screwing around too much.
Back off before you do some real damage.
