Audio driver is on the motherboard cd that should have come with the computer. If u dont have the cd then go to the mobo website and see if u can d/l it there.

I have never had to download an audio driver from the company website, so i am not exactly sure what it is that u should be looking for. What manufacturer is ur mobo and are u sure u have onboard audio? The download should sy something about audio.
The clock is set in ur preferences to ur timezone, i am not sure where it is that u r from. Its probably server time +- certain amount of hours depending on which timezone you choose.
