If you double click the icon that you downloaded, it should pretty much walk you through the installation procedures for installing/reinstalling the new sound drivers. Just hit yes/ok/I accept all the way through it, then restart your computer when it's done.

If you've downloaded the drivers into a folder, you'll have to find an icon that says "setup.exe" and double click that to start the installation.

Not sure why it's saying to free up some memory....is it saying virtual memory? Or room on your hard drive? Rule of thumb is to never fill up your hard drive more than 75% full, as it could cause "issues" with windows.

Hope this helps!

Hmmm...aren't you having video card issues also? :thumbsup: Have you ran all the standard anti spyware programs? Try running a few of them to see what they find. Then try running CCleaner. Unfortunatley, malicious programs tend to mess a lot up.....I've learned that the hard way :flowers:

tomboysocks,
If you have a problem you would like to discuss, please start your own topic.
This will help to avoid the confusion, of trying to help two or more people, in the same thread, with different problems.
Even if your problem is similar to the original poster's problem, the solution could be totally different due to different hardware, software, system requirements, etc....
