Most likely two screws on the bottom of the laptop that hold the memory cover closed, inside you will find 1-2 memory modules, you may have to remove one of the old ones and then install the new one, or if one is free install the new one there.
When you say you have to re-install them, are you actually installing the sound drivers from the acer restore programme or cd, or are you just letting windows find them(the sound driver) each time you go through the process of deleting them.
Try installing drivers from the acer website to see if there is any newer driver versions
If it continues, you may have to restore the original laptop settings back to factory default, assuming it hasn't done this since the day of setup, but make sure you back up all settings and documents to cd or dvd first.
