You can goto this link and download the drivers in Audio section.

After downloading you will install the drivers, restart your Notebook and hopefully get this fixed.

Note: Its better to remove the Audio drivers first before installing the new ones, to do so; Right click My Computer/Computer > then click Manage > Then find the Device manager on the right panel.
There find the Audio drivers/Controllers and uninstalled them.

I hope this will help you out!
