    You do!

    Please put your System Specs in your Profile

    If you have a proprietory computer like Dell; HP; Acer etc, please manually write this in the mobo field (ie Dell Dimension 3100 - as an example)

    So you updated all, and still the audio is not working?

    It may be a setting in the audio program, or in Control Panel- Sound/Audio properties
