the manufacturer's website. There you should find not only the drivers for the device but all the sound applications that came with the sound card. Download and install them according to the directions. Happy listening!

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
