Help finding correct sound driver

By Xfactor

  1. After recent random BSOD, it turned out to be a sound driver that once worked, but for some reason, no longer does.

    Could someone, perhaps help me finding the correct sound driver?

    Was wondering if you knew where I might be able to find a compatible one. Anyway the one that caused the reboots is here:http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads...=23&Level=4&Conn=3&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false Exucatble file/site1

    Currently without sound. Sittin idle.

    Also if you have a manufacture named computer (Dell; Hp; Acer etc) you may want to search on your computer's support page
