Okay so i dont really have a sound card, i just use the one off my mother board. I never saw a problem with it untill I started recieving errors that would randomly restart my computer. I thought I had fixed it but it hasn't been fixed because the problem still occurs. I've inculded the specs on my computer, and I was hoping that someone could tell me where to get some updated drivers for my sound card? Or if something else was conflicting what I would need to do to get the issue resloved. Because I believe its not only affecting my computer but my World Of Warcraft as well. So here are the specs:
