I just got an iWill KK266 Plus motherboard which is suppose to be great... I installed clean windows 2000 and it would not recognize the sound card drivers at all!!! I am so lost here!
I tried the drivers from the iWill CD, as well as the updated ones from the C-Media web site (I even tried old versions and different BIOS settings - just on case) no success.

It starts installing them and after about two seconds it goes to the "Finish" screen in the hardware wizard and says: An error has occured during the intallation of the device:
Tha Data is invalid"
Same thing happends with the device driver wizard and the update wizard (these are all different names for the same wizard I guess)

I also found this driver in "windows update" - Even the windows update fails to install it and gives me the "Installation failed" messege!

As long as the sound card doesn't work, also the USB and game Port won't work either.

Can anyone give me a suggestion of what to do??? I am going crazy here!!!
