This is one of the reasons where a not so tech savvy person shouldn't use those "one click" clean your computer system utilities.

First you should get an idea of the Audio adapter and codec that you have installed on your system. A tool like HwINFO is very informative. Download the specific version for your system. Extract and run it and expand "Audio" in the left sidebar and click on the item below it and post back here the results you see in the section Audio adapter and Audio codec and we'll help you find the necessary drivers
If you seek for attention, do common things in life in an uncommon way!

Tom, welcome to the forum.

What George.J suggested is a system information tool, HWInfo. It will tell you what components, or hardware, you have on your system. Knowing the model number of the components is important, so that the correct drivers can be downloaded. That is where the software for system information come in handy.

HWInfo is one such software. George.J has provided the link for the its site to you in his post. You can download the software here, from its download page:

You can find out whether your Windows is 32-bit, or 64-bit, by right clicking on "My Computer", and clicking on Properties. If you are in doubt, just download HWiNFO32. Run it on your system.

As George.J said in his post, note down what it says for Audio Adapter, and Audio Code, under the Audio tab, in the software.

Also, in the same software, click on the Motherboard tab, and please note down the Motherboard Model, and post it here.

Both of these will help locate the driver for the audio on your system.
