You have to be more specific. Do you want to install a sound /audio card? If this is what you want to do most mainboards have built in audio that needs to be enabled in the Bios (something you can access only on startup, not recomended you play with these settings if you don't know what your doing. But you can be easily directed how to do it so long as you know the make and model of your mainboard. usually a simple google search will give you that info.) If the onboard audio is defective like mine (stopped working) then you have to buy a sound card that is compatible with your mainboard i.e. PCI or PCI Express. Assuming you have an open slot. Hope this hlps.

You can buy an audio card to put in yourself. unplug the computer and open the side panel. Lay the box on its side and look for a slot that is compatible with the card. If there are no slots left you are out of luck. Most computers have an on board audio. If that is the case and you meant to ask how to get and install audio drivers then look up the make and model of your main-board. Go to their website and choose the operating system that you have and the model number etc you also have to chose 32 bit or 64 bit so you have to know what kind of set up you have before you choose. Download audio drivers and any other drivers that you find on the website and burn them to a cd and file away for future reference. It is best to tape it inside the computer case when it is not being used. To install the drivers put your cd-rom in and use windows explorer or my computer to find your cd and examine the cd. You may have to copy the files and paste them in a file folder of your choosing on C: drive or even better on a second hard-drive where a severe windows crash will not destroy your important files. If they need to be extracted from an archive i usually install WinRar and each driver archive can be extracted to its own folder. Downloading each driver can be confusing as to what it was originally for so make a new folder with the name of the type of driver eg. Audio Driver, Video Driver, etc. and place the appropriate driver each into their own folder. To verify what drivers are missing use control panel/device manager (change Category View to Large Icon View to make the path easier to find). Any device that has an exclamation mark is one that is missing a driver (your audio should be one of them) if you installed the drivers but the device manager still shows problems.. right click the device in device manager and choose update driver. Sometimes this can be done without downloading the drivers from the website.

Why my audio driver failed to intall?

Try looking for a patch or updated driver for your sound system in your PC, integrated or a sound card that should be available at the manufacturers website(for mobo or integrated/external sound). After updating it should work, rather it has to because sp3 is better suited than SP2 and generally microsoft itself distributes the patches & updates. Alternatively you can visit, become a free member and let the Drive probe tell you which driver, including version, your PC will require to play audio/stero sounds........sodeep
