A driver is a software program that allows a piece of hardware (Sound Card, Video Card etc.) to communicate with your Operating System software (Windows XP, Vista etc.).Thousands of different driver programs have been written to permit thousands of different devices to communicate with many different computer operating systems.
So, you can't just say "I need a driver" You have to describe the hardware you need the driver for, who made the hardware, the model number of the hardware and the operating system you want to install the driver on.
Here are some examples of how to find out where you have a go to get the drivers that you need:
I have a Compaq Presario computer. The Model No. Is XXXXXX-XXX . I need the sound drivers for Windows XP. Please tell me where to go and how to download these drivers.
I don't know the name of my computer, but the motherboard is made by Asus and its part number is YYYYY-YYY. I need the video drivers for this board. My operating system is Windows 2K pro. Please tell we where I can find these drivers and how to download them.
I have HP model ZZZ-XX Printer. I lost the driver CD. Please tell me where I can get a repkacement CD for use on Windows 7.
I have a Web Cam made by Acton. The model number is 1234-56. Where can I find these drivers for Windows 98?
I need all the drivers for my motherboard that is installed in My Dell computer model No 2323-4545. These drivers were on the system restore CD which I lost. I either need the drivers or another CD. My OS is Windows XP pro.

Goto Start, Control Panel, add or remove programs.
Uninstall the sound card drivers.
Reload the Sound card drivers from your Setup CD.
Every thing should work fine then.
When you load SP3 some of the drivers get corrupted (lost).
Ok It Sounds As Though You've Been Run Around By What Is Supposed To Be A Reliable Computing Company. What Your Explaining Is Sounding More And More Like Your Sound Card Is Corrupt In Accomodation To Certain Things But It May Not Be You Can Try Downloading And Installing A Sound Card From Realtek They Are Reliable And Great Sound Quality If Your Problem Still Persists See A Qualified Computer Technician That Isnt An Idiot Like The Company You Were Being Guided By. If You Do Not Wish To Back-up Your Files You Wish To Keep To Disks And Re-Install Your System Doing So Afterwards You May Need To Re-Install SP2 Sound Card Ect. I Hope This Is Of Some Help to You
Contact the Manufacturer for the Installation CD... they may charge you for it but it's cheaper than buying a new copy of XP... or look on ebay for a recovery cd but make sure it's for the same brand of computer or it wont work
Hi sachin. Copy the model number of your sound card from the motherboard's CD and search for the drivers in the corresponding vendor's site. You will definitely find the drivers on the site. Else , just post the model of the sound device, i will you the link to the driver download.
