Hi Oldladystarr, welcome to the Forum.

A driver failure is unlikely to be the cause. It is more likely a hardware failure problem. From what you have said you have checked all the external wiring & plugs to be sure they are secure. If you are not really into computers & diagnosing problems it might be best to get professional help at a good local computer shop.

What are you doing when that occurs? Do you hear sounds when your system starts up?

You can go here and run the diagnostics for your sound problem-
