Items in blue which are underlined are clickable to give more information about the process

Download and install Everest Home Edition

Run the programme, click + next to computer then summary

Look on the right for multimedia / audio adapter

Look at the manufacturer’s site for the suitable drivers for your Operating System


If you are unable to find them, please post the make and model here before you download anything

Please set a system restore point before you install anything

Click start then right click my computer, click properties, hardware, device manager

Click the + next to sound, video and game controllers

Could you post what is shown there

Does anything in device manager have any yellow markings

Restart the PC and keep tapping the delete key (possibly F2) until it enters set up, look for BIOS defaults, load those, press F10 to save, type Y to confirm, then press enter

Maybe shown as fail safe defaults, if that isn't there can you post any defaults options on the set up screen
