    Default Sound Driver

    Hi its me again, I'm trying to resolve a really annoying issue on this new computer, and it trying to find an updated video card for it wasn't enough now I need to find one for my sound driver. You guys think you could guide me there? I'm not sure where to find my current one. Which one is it under the device manager? I think its a realtek, but I want to make sure plus I don't know my current driver.

    Hi - Download and run the free program in the link below. It should give you the information you require, and much more. Post the soundcard details and someone will point you towards the driver. Also please post some system details. Processor? How much RAM? Operating system 98? XP?

    I believe this is the driver you need http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_2k_81.98.html . I have edited your log above as there is information that does not need to be shown for your security.
