I have recently updated my drivers using Driver Checker and now my sound wont work.
In the hardware tab of my sound and audio devices, my Real'tec AC'90 audio driver shows the error:
'this driver cannot start (code 10)'

Help me

Roll back the drivers, this might solve your issue.
Go to Control Panel, open Administrative Tools.
Next open Computer Management, then choose Device Manager from the menu on the left side.
Click on Sound, Video, and Game Controllers, highlight your sound device, right click, choose properties.
Within Properties, Driver tab.
Select Roll Back Driver, click OK.

Were you having problems which led you to update the drivers?
