A driver is software that helps your device communicate with the operating system, and it can usually be found on the manufacturer's website (maker of the sound device in this case).

check the model of ur sound card ( if integrated sound then find the motherboard model) and dowblaod the driver from the manufacturer website - for example : creative soundblaster - go to creative .com

2. disable ur built in sound card in BIOS - if u have additional soundcard

It's probably a Realtek Hi-Def chip. Try these drivers. They won't install if a realtek chip isn't located.
Realtek HD Audio 2.34 Driver download from Guru3D.com
