What you need to know is the make and model of your sound card/onboard sound. Then go to the maker's site and download the latest drivers from there. It does't matter where you save them on the drive,once downloaded open and install and all should be well.

Run this (Belarc) direct download click here save to your desktop and open.

This will also tell you your sound card on onboard sound details under multimedia.

If this does not tell you,post back the details listed under motherboard and we will try to find the drivers for you.
