    Help my sound is crackling up!!


    I am leaving for India and having problem with sound on my new Dell. The problem was not there before. Strange. I have Vista Windows Business and 32 bit.

    I have a crackling noise in my sound. I went to personalize and went to look for Start Navigation settings and it has a question mark in a yellow sign. What does that mean??

    I need to fix this problem.

    Thanks.

    Go to start button, search. Then go to device manager. Update speaker driver
    The driver associated with that yellow sign must be updated.

    Go to search by start button.
    Type device manager. In device manager look for something that says sound or some such thing. Uninstall from there. Go to the Dell site and download the drivers appropriate for your computer. Then Boot computer.
