This should help you if it's what youre looking for. Not sure it will help with your sound issues though. Have you installed the latest drivers for your sound card?

go to my computer>right click>properties>device manager

you'll see a list of driver,go to sound and update driver

Another way is to check your sound card,you can go to run>type dxdiag>go to sound tab and you'll see installed sound card. check what brand it is and go to related website to download the driver)

feel free to ask
