If the above option is not working or sound driver is not installed, please download the updated driver from the website or the CD that came along with the sound card and then try the same steps above.
Sometime, we will often encounter the situation that the sound driver is froze suddenly or simply unable to play sound while we are playing games or listening to music. These problems are quite difficult to solve for many reasons, but the solutions should certainly include updating the sound driver.Driver updates are sometimes released officially for better functionality or new features. So, Updating sound driver is a good way to fix sound problems. The following steps will show you how to do the updating. Step 1 Insert the driver installation CD into the computer's CD/DVD driver; a driver installation wizard will load. If you do not have the driver installation CD, you can download the sound driver at the manufacturer's site. Once the file has finished downloading, double-click the file to launch the driver installation wizard. Step 2 Read through and accept the license agreement presented to you. You cannot install the driver without accepting this license agreement. Step 3 Click "Next" for both the installation name and location. Changing these settings can result in the computer being unable to detect the driver. Choose "Install," and the sound card drivers will install onto your computer. Tips: 1. Get the exact model number of your sound card. This is important as a slight change in the model number can mean a great difference in the driver requirement. 2. Go to the sound card manufacturer's website. The native driver is usually your best choice if one is available for your operating system. The sound card maker will usually know how to make the sound card work for the operating system rather than the other way around. Also, the drivers on the sound card website will frequently be available as a self-installing executable so all you have to do is run the installation program. If a native driver is not available for your operating system, search the operating system's website for a driver compatible with your sound card.
The term "multimedia driver" encompasses a wide range of drivers, including those for sound cards, graphics cards,
TV tuners, video capture cards, and modems. This may seem a bit
overwhelming, but fortunately the driver installation process for each
of these cards is standard on most operating systems.
Insert the driver CD that was included with your multimedia
card. The CD auto-play feature will begin the installation procedure.
If you do not have a driver CD, proceed to step 2. Otherwise, proceed
to step 4.
Download the current drivers for your multimedia card from the manufacturer's website (examples: Nvidia
homepage, ATI homepage, Sound Blaster homepage). Save the driver to
your desktop for easy access. The driver download page can commonly be
found in the support section of the website.
Double-click the driver installation file to begin the installation process.
Read the license agreement and select "OK" to proceed. This will begin the installation process.
your computer once the driver installation is complete. Not every
driver requires a restart. You will be prompted by the program to
restart, if it is necessary.
Hello! kindly follow this steps below: Please find your motherboard or sound card driver then insert it in your disk in the CD/DVD ROM if it is in a disk then run the setup.exe of that driver software then follow certain steps given by the computer installation wizard.
