If all is working right I suggest you leave well enough alone. If you are getting that message from an installed program it is simple looking at dates and sending that message. There may not even be a newer driver. As I said, if working OK leave it alone.

Well it does skip sometimes, and in my games the audio goes too fast, so that might be a problem.

Somewhere in those specs I see you have Realtek HD audio. That type of audio hasn't been out long enough to have obsolete drivers.

That said, there are literally hundreds of different driver versions of Realtek HD sound. They generally are not interchangeable. Not if you want all the features to work.

I haven't heard of sound that was out of sync by being faster before. Are you sure it isn't behind?

The skipping is usually caused by the sound sharing resources with high bandwidth device/s. Check in Device manager to see what else is using the same IRQ as the sound.

Well, I play Assassin's Creed, and I've noticed that the words are spoken half a second before they form the words with their mouths, and the sounds in the cutscenes (i.e. swords drawn, things landing on the floor, someone pushing someone else) comes about five seconds earlier than it should.

Are you sure the video isn't just being delayed? I don't know how the audio can be ahead. Usually one or the other lags behind.

No, because the voice is only one step ahead of the facial expressions, yet the noises that have to do with movement are ten steps ahead of the events. This cannot be lag! I will contact the game support.
"The skipping is usually caused by the sound sharing resources with high bandwidth device/s. Check in Device manager to see what else is using the same IRQ as the sound."
How would I do that?

Right click on My computer and select properties> hardware> devive manager. Highlight the very top line (computer name) and choose view> resources by connection and expand Interrupt request (IRQ). That will show you all the IRQ assignments.

Is the game legal? Are you playing it off the disk or hard drive?

Completely legal. Bought the game at Fry's Electronics (maybe you've heard of it). Director's Cut. I have been experiencing strange bugs (like, that I cannot enter an entire area) and the game support do not know what to do (because they think my Drivers need to updated; the gameplay is fine apart from the sound, only one area that I am unable to access). I thought it was corrupted Data, but if it is, I do not know how to fix. And the device manager says "No Conflicts" on the sound.

Didn't you state above the sound works fine elsewhere?

If so, then it isn't the sound drivers.

You didn't say if you are playing off the game disk or off the hard drive. Or what you found out about the IRQs. I still say it is a video lag.

The sound? No, it doesn't work fine, but it does work. Sometimes the video lags, and this is no doubt the reason that the voices are ahead, but aside from that, the other sounds are way too far ahead to be a symptom of lag.

So how to decrease lag and how to get in sync are the questions.

It is off a disk.

IRQs said there is no conflict; There were more than one sound device stated there, and they were all the same number, along with a few others. I saw no way of changing this.

List all the devices using the same IRQ. Also list anything sharing an IRQ with the graphics (video).

Did you install any motherboard chipset drivers? Is your computer a custom built or a OEM unit like, Dell, e Machines, etc.?

Download SIW.exe and use it to determine what hardware you are running. Get SIW at the link below.
