    It is almost never necessary to update drivers, and most often, not advisable. You can end up with moe problems. Why do you think you should "update" them?

    Try right-clicking the sound device in Device Manager and choose to update. Allow it to search the net for updates. Even if no updates exist, this process alone sometimes fixes problems.

    What driver is being used now? If it is a Windows driver, you can uninstall the deice and let Windows reinstall the driver on next boot.

    What sound device do you have?
