Not having a clue what to do for the best, could you move the question for me please. I've no idea how many points it should be worth, any suggestions?

I would suggest, (if you are comfortable) removing the case cover and examine or look at the sound card to see if you can find any model numbers or brand names.  Other than that, if it is built in on the motherboard then give us the motherboard manufacturer's name and model number and we could most likely get you a link to some drivers.

Reclaim your office - Try the MB 660 headset now!

High level of background noise often makes it difficult for employees to concentrate fully on their jobs – or to communicate clearly on calls. The MB 660 headset helps you create a disruption free workspace.

You can also try to use a program like AIDA32 to identify your sound card for you: http://www.aida32.hu
After you've found the make and model of your card, get some drivers at http://www.driverguide.com (loginname: drivers password: all)

Good luck,

I've used the AIDA32, as recommended, and it tells me I have; Creative SB PCI128 (ensoniq ES5880). But when I go to driverguide I don't know what to do. I'm not dumb,just new to computers :)

In the left top on http://www.driverguide.com you'll find a link saying "Member login" click it and you'll get a loginbox asking for a loginname and a password, username should be "Drivers" and password should be "all" both without the quotes. Now you can go for the basic search.

Fill in the form

Now you should get a list of downloadable drivers.

Please give us the operating system you're using and we should be able to point you to exactly the right driver.
