    the problem for windows to restart and looping is because the wrong driver was installed, as you mention, C-Media causes problems when you try to install it where realtek chipset, and it will refuse to uninstall or be removed, so I am betting your MB has the realtek chipset, so I wouold suggest you uninstall your drivers and then go to the Registry to delete manually any entry referred to C-Media and then try again, sometimes when windows try to detect hardware it choses the wrong driver "automatically" so be alert.
    but also as suggested, you will need to check your motherboard and find what Sound Chip you have (Realtek, ADI) etc

    Found a great link on how to fix the problem.
    It was the wrong driver. It's not Realteck it is AD1888.

    Soundmax Install setup (exe) is a piece of crap. It fails and reports that it can't find driver and tell you to restart machine and run setup again

    However there is another way to install this.


    Click on Multmedia Controller and update driver.
    Choose "Don't search i will choose the driver to install"
    Select Sound controller then select 'Have Disk'
    Choose location of sound driver
    Finished.

    It's the only way this will work. I have had a headache with this for the past 2 weeks. It seems to be a well known problem.

    Hope this is off use to someone in the future.
