Go to Windows updates.
When asked, choose CUSTOM updates. When the process is completed, look in the HARDWARE section.
If the driver for your sound device is listed, install it.

Find the Model of your PC, go to the Manufacturers Website, Click on Support, find a link for drivers, enter the name of your computer, and find the driver for your sound card. This is assuming your computer is from a Manufacturer. If your Computer is, however, a "Whitebox"(Self Made PC), then go with OldPhils Advice.

I have to strongly disagree on updating any non-Microsoft driver through Windows updates.
Microsoft has a history of messing things up in this department.
The very first choice for drivers should always be computer manufacturer, or device manufacturer.

I have always used MS updates for my sound drivers. Never had a problem with it.
It's an option that is available if one wants to try it.

if you have a realtek audio device installed this is the correct official REALTEK web address for your audio drivers. please bookmark it for future reference.

This page is the main menu to HIGH DIFINITION AUDIO CODEC SOFTWARE and AC'97 AUDIO CODEC SOFTWARE.

http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/

Good luck!

No, I need a whole report, because most likely, you need to start with installing chipset driver.
