Sound card/audio troubles

  1. my computer keeps displaying a sign that no audio devices are available, so i download the audio soundcard from the website and everything is ok for a while. however soon after (usually a few days) the sign comes back saying that once again there are no audio devices. so once again i have to download the soundcard and the sequence is repeated.
    the control panal states that the realtek audio is present and working.

    can someone please tell me how i can get the audio device to stay working on the computer. Any help or advice is greatly appreciated

    Sony Vaio VGN-N11H/W
    INTEL CENTRINO CORE DUO T2250
    MICROSOFT WINDOWS XP MEDIA CENTRE EDITION 2005

    You using onboard audio or what ? Youll need to install motherboard drivers which also install sound driver, gl
