"Had to rebuild a HP Pavilion 533w desktop after a disk crash for a client, but they couldn't find the "recovery disks"...So I started the rebuild from scratch, HP's site had all the drivers but the sound drivers , which brought me to this place , found the driver listed for the machine , installed it and had it up and running in no time...."

  3. Click the Update Driver button and follow the instructions.

In most cases, you will need to reboot your computer in order for the driver update to take effect.
