If you have a branded computer, go to the computer manufacturer's website.
If you have a PCI or external soundcard or interface, go to the website of the soundcard manufacturer.
Drivers are the piece of software that tells your computer how to talk to the specific hardware you have installed or connected to your computer.
The drivers must be specific to the particular model of your computer or sound device, and are usually produced by the sound device or motherboard manufacturer.
On a 64-bit operating system, the drivers of the sound device must be 64-bit.
You may need to find out the name, specifications and current driver details for your sound device, so you can update it correctly.
Then visit the website of the computer manufacturer or motherboard manufacturer.
You can search Google or Yahoo to find the correct internet address of the manufacturer.
If the driver provider is Microsoft, note the name of the sound device you right-clicked over.
Expand "Sound, video and game controllers" by clicking on the arrow, then right-click over your sound device and choose Properties.
Click on the "Driver" tab to check the driver provider, date and version.
Problems such as recordings freezing up, difficulty in selecting the correct, working input source or having the full range of input sources available, usually mean your sound device has faulty, outdated or inappropriate drivers.
If this occurs it is important that the drivers are updated.
