"This driver worked exactly as promised. It also included the mixer and the software (well, minimally) that provided OEM function. I used it on Windows XP Professional with no problems whatsoever."

  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.
