The Asus model will always be printed in fairly large letters on the face of the motherboard near the bottom. It's kind of hard to read at first, so hold it out in front of you at arms length.

Drivedr ASUS D33005

Research has shown that this board is actually Asus A8M2N-LA (the name is often obscured by the graphics card). It was manufactured specifically for HP/Compaq and Asus do not therefore support it with drivers etc on their website, which is otherwise excellent for finding drivers, specifications and a lot of other data about their boards. Since you do not give a HP/Compaq model number, I can only suggest that you go to the page link below where you will be able to enter your HP/Compaq model number and get the drivers you need for your OS

Will a Dell 2500 server motherboard be used on a Dell 1800 server

The model numbers are so far apart, there's 700 digits between and with each of those probably 2-3 sub models (1800a, 1820a/b/c 1900, etc., 2490a, 2490b, 2500) and since then, probably 7 years ago, even memory has changed so I doubt they are the same motherboard. Your motherboard should have a name printed on it in white ink, plus you can probably search google for keywords such as
Dell 1800 motherboard
Dell 2500 motherboard
and find your answer or look for replacement parts online, with a goal of finding the motherboard brand & part number.

If you go to you can select your systems or have your systems scanned to see if memory is the same. It might even tell you what motherboard, but it's doubtful.

There are also programs that can scan your system and tell you what components are installed, but all in all, looking at the motherboard yourself is the best way, and without a doubt, will leave little chance of incorrect ID.

Is the sound built into the motherboard or a separate soundcard?

If it's part of an Asus motherboard, go to

No drivers audio on motherboard

The Motherboard is not the only part of your computer and no sound drivers are installed on it. Actually the "sound drivers" are installed in the main Hard Disk. With an ASUS, you should be with a good partner. You can download your other drivers and they are very good in giving help. We, of course go the extra mile and will make sure that your computer is fixed by you. If you need any more help, please, supply us with the following info.

I dont my mother board

Is this motherboard in a working computer, and is internet capable?
(One never assumes, as the person asking the question, may be using another computer to post the question)

If so, I suggest going to, and download CPU-Z. (It's free)
CPU-Z will tell you all about,

1.Mainboard, (Motherboard): Who makes it, what model number it is, what processor socket it has, what motherboard chipset it uses, what integrated audio, (Sound), what integrated graphics, (Video) (Unless it doesn't have integrated video, and relies on a graphics card), and so on.

2.Ram memory: How many ram slots it has, what ram slots are being used, what ram type it uses, what ram 'speed' it uses, and so on.

3.Processor: What processor is installed, who made it, and what model number, what the Front Side Bus is, (FSB), what the internal clock is, and so on.

Finding the motherboard manufacturers name, and the model number, you go online to the motherboard manufacturers website, go to Support, and type the model number in. This will take you to a Support page for that motherboard. There you will find a CPU Support List, (Processor), plus what the Maximum TOTAL Amount of ram is, and what the Maximum Amount for EACH ram slot is, plus a host of other info.

You can also try downloading Belarc Advisor.

If the motherboard is in your hand, look on the motherboard, and see if you can see the motherboard manufacturers name.
(Examples: Asus, AsRock, Chaintech, Gigabyte, Intel, MicroStar International Inc.,(MSI), ECS, Evga, PNY, PCchips, and so on.

Look for the model number on the motherboard. It may be in-between the expansion slots, near the edge of the motherboard, or in the middle.

If this is a motherboard that came out of an HP, or Compaq computer, things gets a little tougher. Post back here with the computer name and model number.
It's on the back of a desktop computer, right next to the Windows Product Key, or up on the side of the tower.

For a laptop it's on the bottom. It may be in a Service Tag.

Check for actual model number per Asus

Then use either auto-direct to download or general information to locate your motherboard on this link.

This is kind of a tough one, so I'll give you what I can. Open the case and locate the largest board ( the motherboard) and painted on the motherboard (with usually white lettering paint) there should be the name of the manufacturer. Some of the majors are Asus, Intel, Biostar, Abit, Foxconn, Gigabyte, evga just to name a few. There should be a model number painted somewhere on the board in smaller lettering as well. If not paint, look for a thin somewhat long sticker towards the perimeter of the board which contains a model number and a serial number. If you can find a model number but no vendor name, do a google search on the model number and the name might pop-up. If this doesn't get you anywhere, your next step is to identify the sound chip itself. This isn't as daunting as it sounds, but will take a bit of time. To identify the sound chip look on the motherboard, and write down the information on each chip. You don't need to write down any information for chips that have heat sinks (like the processor, graphics, sometimes the bridge chips) will only leave a few. Then do a google search one by one until you hit on one that is a sound chip. Then do a google search for drivers for that chip. Hope this gets you started.
