2- Click the Hardware tab.

3- Expand Sound, video, and game controllers.

4- Double-click the sound card, and then click the Driver tab.

5- Click Update Driver.

According to the specs site for the Compaq Presario SR1365CL desktop, it has Realtek AC'97 Audio.

The current audio driver(5.10.0.6300) for it can be downloaded from here. This driver is about 3 years newer than the one(5.10.0.5730) listed in the specs site.

Download and save the file, turn off or disable the antivirus program, double-click the file to install the driver, then restart your computer.
