Audio Drivers Download

An Audio Driver is software which connects and controls the Audio (or sound) card in your computer, tablet or smartphone. Typically, out-of-date, corrupt or missing Audio Drivers can cause problems such as a "No Sound" error, or crackled or distorted sound. The problem could also be the result of improper configuration or incompatible hardware. Upgrading from one version of Windows to another can create problems, because your current driver may work only for the previous version of Windows. Downloading and installing the latest driver for your specific device can fix these types of errors.

Once you have downloaded the new driver, next you must remove the current driver if it is installed. On a Windows PC, you do this by using a built-in utility called Device Manager. It allows you to see all of the devices attached to the PC, and the drivers associated with them.
