Figure out the manufacturer of the device that is having problems, go to the manufacturer's website, download the audio driver and update the driver.

It's alright that your new to this, most people are. To figure out the manufacturer, you can look at your laptop's specs to see the motherboard's manufacturer. Then, just go to the manufacturer's website and find the sound device driver. If you put up the type of laptop you have I could find it for you, since your new to this :).
