Audio Realtek Audio Driver 5.10.00.5930 30.1 MB 2008/12/10 <---the driver listed on acer's website
188.8.131.5205 <--- most up to date driver i can find on the interweb
i've been scouring these forums and it looks like i'm not the only one with the problem, and if anyone has found a solution they have not posted it.
tried using the windows action center and the microsoft fixit center.
