Question about Computers & Internet
My pc has an msi amb k8 motherboard and i would like to know what type of sound card it has and also where can i find the sound card drivers?
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...
