You can try several approaches. First, you can go to the Notebook's manufacturer (Dell, HP, IBM, Toshiba, etc.) and select your model and download the drivers for it.

You may find drivers from the sound card's manufacturers website as well (often they recommend the first method).

Also, you can try going to windowsupdate, there may be driver updates for your system there.

A friend of mine had exactly the same problem. The solution was to enter the BIOS and enable the onboard sound. Somehow it had been turned off - re-enabling it sorted his problem out.

Good luck
