I need a new sound driver. Where can I find one???? All I can find about my sound card is is its a SB AUDIGY AUDIO (DC00).
I found a site on the internet http://www.drivershq.com/ that did a scan of the drivers on my computer and it said 63% of them were bad including my sound driver. They wanted a one time fee of $29.95 so I could download the drivers.
Is this place for real???? If not,is there a way to scan my computer to see if my drivers are bad or need updating????

I can't seem to find any. You might want to try this:

http://www.drivershq.com/predd.asp

You can't fix it there. But you'll find out what exactly your system calls your soundcard. After the scan, report back here with what drivers it said you needed so we can go find them for you. <_<

Maybe this'll say it's name:

1. Right click on "My Computer" and choose "Properties"
2. Click the "Hardware" tab at the top, and then "Device Manager" at the middle
3. Then choose "Sound, video, and game controllers
4. Tell me what "SoundBlaster" or "SB" items it lists

Thanks,
Nathan

All it says is CREATIVE SB AUDIGY.
Also,is it worth paying the $29.95 for the site you gave me to fix the other driver problems it mentioned????

There are 12 different models and all I can find out about the sound card is:
SB AUDIGY AUDIO (DC00) and this sound card was made in July 2002,so I don't know which to download.
I called the manufacture and they said that they don't have updates for this sound card because this is an OEM installed sound card.
