Hey,

Downloading the latest drivers for my videocard is quite simple (even for a guy who doesn't know the first thing about computers like me), but trying to keep your audiocard and/or motherboard updated is a whole other story. :cln:

Problem is that I was told that by updating your motherboard driver, you automatically update your audio-drivers. :confused:

Question 1 is simple: Is it required to update your motherboard-drivers and by doing so - is it correct to assume that your audio-drivers are instantly updated as well, please? :)

Question 2 is a little trickier: Assuming updating my motherboard-driver is necessary enough - how do I determine the name of my motherboard so I can go to its homepage and download its latest driver, please? :o

I used to go to the site www.realtek.com (http://www.realtek.com) for updating my audio-drivers, but now it seems that might bring complications as I have to update my motherboard-drivers instead ... :confused:

Please help me! I'm quite desperate! :yik:

Thanks!

Bye for now

No :) They just put any responsibility off them (in case ;) ). Go to THIS (http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=14&PFid=23&Level=4&Conn=3&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false) page, tick "I agree..." and press Next. Then choose the driver for your OS, better choose .exe file for simplier installation.
