Sound Card Problems: No Sound from Computer on Windows?

Can't hear any sound from computer speakers or headphones? Sound from speakers is cracking or distorted? Windows can't recognize the sound card in your PC? How to update your sound card drivers online for free?

The sound problems are closely related to the sound card drivers. To recognize your sound card or sound processor, Windows needs a compatible and properly working sound card driver. An outdated, incompatible, or damaged sound card driver can ruin the communication between the computer and the sound card.

Therefore, you need to download a best-matched driver for your sound card. In most cases, Windows Update can't find a driver for the sound card, not to mention a "best-matched" driver or the latest one. So we'd better get some tools to help.

Driver Talent (formerly called DriveTheLife) is one of those tools that can intelligently check which driver is damaged or incompatible with your sound card, quickly find the most suitable driver and then help to automatically download and install the sound card driver. What's more, it's the only driver update software for free working for Windows 10, Windows 8.1, Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows XP, and Windows Vista, either 64 bit or 32 bit.

Editor's Note: DriveTheLife has been updated to the new version called Driver Talent with a fresh new look.
