Internet Explorer > Tools > Windows Update

Scan for updates.

There should be an update for AC97 available to you.

It's also advisable to install any other updates available.
i got this error after trying to use 'windows update':

"Files required to use Windows Update are no longer registered or installed on your computer"

then i chose to install those files, and i got the next error:

"The website has encountered a problem and cannot display the page you are trying to view. The options provided below might help you solve the problem" (error number:0x8007041D)

is there any other solution maybe?

thanks again.
i fixed the first problem (low volume) by updating the driver through "device manager" instead of "windows update".
But the volume control still isnt responding. But thats less important.
i'm having an issue where my sound will work for few days, then it will stop working. then i have to reload the sound drivers. *** is that about? any suggestions?
