A Sound driver shows yellow mark

Specs: Windows 7, 4GB

Today the sound finally started skipping on my MSI system. I notice that the sound/volume was acting strangely the day before, so today it went bonkers!

Going into Device Manager I could see the yellow exclamation mark sitting on the right-bottom side of the icon reading WPD File System Driver Volume Driver.
I deleted this icon and rebooted, but the yellow exclamation mark returned and the skipping continues with a stop and go throughout the program. It plays clearly for a few seconds and reverts back to the skippy, jerking sound motion
Deleting this worrisome device driver does not help because it reinstalls itself and repeats the same stop and go behavior.

Speaker System:
Mfg: Cyber Acoustics
Amplified Speaker System (CA-30001)
3 Piece System 2.1
Two satellite Speaker plus One Subwoofer
AC Adapter + Manual

Having purchased this product on 04/06/2013, I am still under the warranty to return it and get another brand.
Even with the option of returning this product, what are the chances that this sucking error will not present itself on a different model, make, etc.

Thanks much for your help in this matter.

BTW, to compound and confound the sucking flukes with this motherboard, an (MSI 740GTM)-P21(MS-7302) I have been unable to find a Sound card that would alleviate this whole mire, but the cards I’ve checked out DOES NOT fit on this mainboard, they’re either too short or too long to fit properly, thus leaving me no option but to use the mainboard for sound.
w do I deal with a recalcitrant sound driver?

Download a new uncorrupted copy of the sound driver from MSI, then delete the icon, install the driver, and if needed, restart the system.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

You could try re-installing the audio driver for your motherboard from the MSI website.
Drivers for your motherboard model are here:


It would do no harm to re-install the CHIPSET DRIVERS first (ATI System Drivers at bottom of drivers list), then install the Realtek HD Audio Driver.

To add to the above comments I would say that there is most likely NOTHING wrong with your speaker system. The issue lies with the sound chip or the sound drivers.
