Don't get obsessed with keeping the drivers or the BIOS up to date Leave them alone unless an update fixes a problem you're experiencing or offers new features you absolutely must have.
Manufacturers of motherboard sound devices such as Realtek, Sigmatel and Soundmax do not usually provide any driver support to end users.
It seems like a day doesn't go by where our computer isn't politely urging us to please install an update for something or other.
Device Manager can also try and update the drivers for you itself, and Windows users are strongly recommended to try this update facility as a first step - see Extra help for Windows users below.
Once you have the necessary information about your sound device, you can normally obtain appropriate updated drivers specific to your hardware from the internet.While most of these allow us to explore new features in our music library or help software run with more security, there's also the need to update so your computer can run what you want, period.
