Go to the manufacturer's web site, support/downloads and download the drivers there.

Might be better to do this from device manager, if there is a yellow exclamation mark, click update driver.

Is you machine a Sony? Have you tried downloading the driver from their site?

Have you tried copying the driver file to your desktop and then running it?

Hello Dear

Check the website of your motherboard or the maker of your sound card if this is a special built system. You should be able to find these details by running a Belarc Advisor.

Do you have any signs of errors in the sound area of Device Manager?

Are you doing your uninstall/re-install attempts through Device Manager or some other method?

I use Realtek onboard sound and cannot recall any particular difficulties with the control panel.

Do you have Realtek entries in the regular "sound" control panel?

Cougar-Extreme is a reseller not a manufacturer. You will need to check your specs or use something like Belarc Advisor like Xhi suggest. Judging by your screen shots Your board is probably from ASRock, since I see ASR listed in your drives. Figure out what board you got and go to the board makers website for drivers.
