Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Sound card is busted on my laptop and was wondering if I can fix it first before I have to spend any money


Answers :

Sound card on a laptop is integrated on motherboard, and there is no way to fit inside an external one.

Try first reinstalling the driver, you can download the driver from manufacturer website.

If drivers do not fix it, and you are sure the audio chipset is faulty, all you can do is using an external usb card and speakers, like this ones:

Turtle Beach Audio Advantage Micro USB Audio Adapter
SIIG SoundWave 7.1 Audio Adapter

But most of the times you fix the audio by reinstalling drivers.
