Windows 7: Sound card driver issue?

Sound card driver issue?

After upgrading to 7 I have been experiencing some random difficulties with my sound system. When going to my sound card properties, I notice that there is a generic name to the device, "High-Definition Audio Device". Before I upgraded (when I was on Vista) I'm sure that it said Realtek-something but I don't remember the exact device name.

I want to download a driver update for my sound card, but how do I find out which driver I need to download if the name of the sound card is not showing?

Thanks in advance

Their is a third party app Free called unknown device identifier. It could hopefully identify your sound device. Unknown Device Identifier - Freeware Download Good luck and welcome to seven forums. Fabe
