Install the sound drivers from the motherboard cd if its onboard sound, if its a separate pci sound card,go to the manufacturers site to download drivers.

You will need to go to the mortherboard manufactureers website and download the full motherboard drivers - Chipset, LAN, Audio, Video.

What is the make and model of your computer or what is the motherboard
