Hi t_bihlaz...

to find the sound card type you have, go to control panel, system.. once you're there click on the hardware tab and open the device manager... you should be able to find your sound card in there... you'll have to click on the + next to sound or audio devices and if you right click on the actual device you'll get a menu... click properties.

you can find the driver information there, which should give you a clue on what to search for. if the info you find there isn't enough. let me know and i'll explain how to find the info on the physical card, it involves opening your pc... and you have to be very careful doing that... so get back to me about that if what you find in the device manager isn't enough and i'll tell you exactly what to look for.

to find a driver, there are many places to download drivers, most require that you sign up, some require a fee... and the amount of drivers can be mind boggling, so best to check the manufacturers site first... drivers can usually be found in the support section.

often, if the card is old, the manufacturer removes the drivers from the site... usually because they don't support it any longer... if that's the case, you will have to go to one of the many driver sites around... driverguide is one that has a lot of resources.

let me know if this helps and if you need any more info...

DRIVERS SOFTWEAR ARE MISSING.I AM CAN'T USEING MY PC DRIVER.ex:vga card,sound and other utilitys


If you don't know the drivers for your motherboard.

Download DriverMax from that software will tell you what drivers you need to update and provides the links, there is also an unidentified driver section which will identify devices that don't have generic drivers installed and it will tell you what it thinks the device is and supply the driver.

If drivermax fails, you can download (Belarc Advisor) it will run a scan of your computer and tell you what your devices are, from there hopefully it will give you more detailed information of your device drivers that will lead you to finding the correct ones. Most importantly it will tell you your MSI Motherboard model and number which then you will be able to search for those drivers online.

Kind regards,

Evesham evolution blue beast network card?

It appears to have the MSI Neo2 FIS2R Motherboard. You can download the drivers here:

The network card itself would be an Intel card. The driver is on the site above, but if you want Intel's latest version, search for "82562" in the driver section of (I can't give you the exact link to Intel's drivers, unfortunately).

check if this is your motherboard.

if it is the right one then you see the drivers on the top right side of the page.

please post the MS-XXXX number from the motherboard if that wasn't the correct one, for example msnumber:

No audio on my desktop.

Easiest thing I can tell you to do is go and Google search Belarc Advisor and download the program and install. After installation it will run a scan of your PC and then give you a detailed report for all the software and hardware your PC has. Then look for the audio hardware and Google search the name and type driver. Most onboard audio is common to only a few manufatureres and drivers are available almost anywhere. Since I don't know exactly what your hardware is this will save you a bunch of time. You can print the report out and save it so the next time your PC crashes you will know exactly what you need to do get it back up to 100 % again

Hope this helps

the simplest solution is to uninstall and re-install the audio driver, but to find the installation information you would either have to know the type of motherboard ( if it is integrated) or the type of card ( if it is a separate sound card)

No sound

In order to get sound, you will just need to sound driver. The other drivers are for other things.

Pop open the case, and see what brand of motherboard you have. If it's MSI, you're in luck. Just do a google search for MSI live update, and it will download a utility, scan the PC, and then suggest the driver download.

If it's not an MSI board, just go to the manufacturers website, and do a search for audio drivers. It may want the model number of hte board which you can see, briefly when you switch on the PC. Its usually on the very first screen, will be white writing, on black background.

Sound output is veryless in msi pvpm4 motherboard

Hi, having used MSI boards myself I found their website very useful. Open your case, locate and right down your board serial number and revision number, Logon to the website [Google MSI] go to downloads. and locate the latest audio drivers for your board. This should fix the problem, if not then you have a failure on the onboard sound. At boot up go to bios and disable onboard sound. Install a PCI sound card with drivers and that will then give you sound again. Regards mistyman
