Question about Computers & Internet
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.
