PCV-RX463DS Sony Vaio SoundMAX Drivers

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.

No sound on sony vaio desktop pcv rs 420

This is, and the page for the Sony Vaio PCV-RS420,
Click on the + sign next to -> Audio (Sound) 1 files

You will now see ->
Original-ADI SoundMAX Audio Device Driver, Version 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.
