This would help as well,

If unsure what your specs are grab this,

Speccy - System Information - Free Download

and it should show it.
FYI, i own a Sager NP2096 which shipped with drivers for Vista. I installed Windows seven and Sager told me to get drivers from Compal. Now I see three drivers, one from 2008 which I assume is for Vista. And two others, one for Nvidia VGA Sku and one for Intel VGA Sku. what do you think?

This it,

Sager NP2096 Specs

if so it has the Realtek ALC268 audio chip on it and the latest Realtek driver,

Latest Realtek HD Audio Driver Version

should fix it right up.

Final Update:

updating my sound card drivers also appears to have fixed another issue I was having! Can't thank you enough for noticing the driver was missing.

Sound meter software exist for the taskbar?
