Hi kamis_elsawy,

Without knowing what your sound card looks like, or understanding how to identfy a card, you can download a program that if the card is installed on your computer, the software will tell you what the card is. You can find this free software HERE.

Good Luck

How will i know the sound card of my pc? i have it reformat. now i donno how to identify my sound card..

Many name brand companies will supply the common component drivers on their website. If you look up your system model then you should at least be able reduce the number of cards you are looking for.
There are various freeware packages that claim to identify the unknown devices, but I find sifting through a handful of drivers from a manufacturer website is much faster and more reliable.
If the computer was custom built then their should have been provided software discs or information to identify the card. On board sound cards can also be identified by visiting the motherboard manufacturer website and searching for the board model. A list of drivers is typically available and even more refined than common manufacturers of systems.

My pc dont have a sound. can u pls help me what to download

If you don't have a sound card, there's no download that will give you sound. You need to get a sound card. If you mean that you don not have a driver for your sound card, go to and get the free Belarc Advisor. It will identify your sound card and you can then go to the maker's site and download a driver.

Sound Card drivers

It sounds like you just need to identify your specific sound card, and then get the drivers for it. To do this, it's easiest to find the device and vendor id's for your card. Luckily, windows can easily tell you them even if you don't have the drivers yet. To do it, follow these instructions:
  1. Right click on My Computer, and choose Manage.
  2. Now in the box on the right, find your sound card. It will have an icon with a small yellow exclamation mark next to it. Right click on it, and choose properties.
    You should see a windows similar to this one:
  3. That is the text that will identify your sound card. From here, you'll need to pull out the VEN_#### and DEV_#### numbers.
  4. Once you have those numbers, head to Do a device search by entering only the 4 letters and numbers found in the DEV_#### part. It will pull up a list of devices, and from there you can identify your sound card.
If you are not able to uniquely identify your sound card, then comment back with the DEV_#### and VEN_#### numbers, and i'll help you find it.
