Updating sound card driver. Right driver? How?

  Cybermaxx 19:38 23 Aug 2005

My PC uses a Realtek AC97 for sound. I wish to update the driver. Is this the correct one?

I ask because this file is 17MB, whereas the driver listed for my AC97 in Add/Remove Progs. is only 1.5MB. Am I just paranoid?!

Also, how do I install? Do I need to uninstall the current driver from Add/Remove Progs. first, then install the new one? Is it really that simple?

yes thats the driver 17214k (16.8MB)

Uninstall old one first and restart computer

Then re-install new driver
