Updating sound card driver
These problems could also be the result of improper configuration or incompatible hardware.
Also, if you recently upgraded from one version of Windows to another, it is possible that your current Sound Card Driver is for the previous version of Windows.
On a 64-bit operating system, the drivers of the sound device must be 64-bit.
Once you have the necessary information about your sound device, you can normally obtain appropriate updated drivers specific to your hardware from the internet.
Manufacturers of motherboard sound devices such as Realtek, Sigmatel and Soundmax do not usually provide any driver support to end users.
This will ensure the sound card works properly with your operating system and computer.
New drivers are released frequently and failing to update can lead to hardware problems and a loss of performance.
To do this, you can use Device Manager on Windows, System Profiler on a Mac or the /lspci or /lsusb commands on Linux.
