I have had a problem with my soundcard for quite sometime. Once upon a time I tried to update my SoundMAX drivers and to my knowledge with some great success.
After the new update my music was very static upon hearing vocals in the music. Of couse I blame the drivers I installed.
I could never find the drivers I once had on this computer that played my music perfectly. (Not even the original sound drivers on the sony support page) fixed the problem.
After countless hours searching i've found all sorts of versions of my ADI SoundMAX Integrated Digital Audio drivers. I've tried them all and they all made a noticable difference, but never the once perfect static free music I once had.
If anyone has a solution maybe it's not the specific "adi soundmax integrated audio drivers" perhaps one could shed some light on this please.

This is eSupport.Sony.com, and the page for the Sony Vaio PCV-RS420, http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-list.pl?mdl=PCVRS420 Click on the + sign next to -> Audio (Sound) 1 files
You will now see -> Original-ADI SoundMAX Audio Device Driver, Version 18.104.22.16822 for the Microsoft Windows Operating System <- in blue. There is a globe with a green arrow to the right of this. Click on this globe/arrow icon.
You will be taken to another window. There is a globe/arrow icon, once more. Click on it. Now follow the instructions. Should a Microsoft 'Squawk Box' pop-up, ignore it. "Warning. This software does not have a digital certificate ya-da, ya-da"
It's from Sony, and I assure you it's safe. Click on Run, and in the next small window, click on Run again. If you have problems, I suggest you come back and post an additional comment. We'll get it straightened out.
I suggest the Windows update may not be a good thing. Windows has thousands of generic drivers. The key word here is "Generic" They are not THE drivers made by Sony for THIS laptop. I suggest using THE drivers.
you can simply reinstall the driver of your audio from the motherboard cd. this cd was issued to you upon upon purchase of your computer. how to install? if your cd rom is not in autoplay click the my computer then double click the cd rom a message will appear to select the drivers for installation then selectthe file sound max. it will automatically installs the driver. if you have some other queries don't hesitate to e-mail me and i am ready to help you.
