Thank you
Hello,

Try this 1.

Click on Start --> Run --> type devmgmt.msc and click on OK.

"Device Manager" will be opened. If you notice any yellow mark then install the

correct drivers. You can download the drivers from the manufacture website

and install it.

Or

Let us know your PC\Motherboard brand name and model number.

Good Luck.

Hi there,

You cannot just install any driver you get for sound,use driver cd if you do not have the you can download it freely from its manufacturer website or even make use of driver detective,have it downloaded using the link below:

Thanks for the reply netsa.Yeah i'm well aware of it that just any driver wont work.I just did it out of irritation.I have been trying to get it working since the last 2 days and nothing seems to be working and i still dint find the drivers for it.

Thanks again.

already tried Driver-detective too but it requires a premium membership to download drivers.lol so no thanks
