I am trying to update the sound drivers on my laptop. A few months back, my laptop's audio began coming through quite scratchy, to the point that I usually completely mute the audio. It is so bad at times that it lags the performance of the rest of the machine, or so it seems.
What information do I need to have on-hand when searching for a more updated sound driver? If I find that the current sound driver I have has not been updated, are sound drivers from other companies typically compatible with various sound cards?
I ran a DirectX Diagnostic (DxDiag) to gather what information I could use to fix the problem. I found out that I am working with the following:
Device: Conexant AMC Audio
