Re: motherboard

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.

Motherboard cd required for my laptop zenith z75110

All you need is the drivers and they will work. Most, but not all, computer makers put all there drivers on their website. So try there first, go to the Zenith website, click on Support. They will probably ask for your model, make and service tag. The service tag is normally on the bottonside of your laptop. You should be able to download directly to your laptop. The second place is the manufacturers website that make your sound card. To find your model for the sound card, click on Start>right-click on My Computer>Click on Properties>Hardware tab and Device driver. Find your sound card in the list of hardware. Click on the plus sign to open the folder and you will see the maker of your sound card. Go to the makers website and download the drivers from there. Hope this helps. Let me know how it goes.

Primary hdd(SATA) appears as removeable storage

There is no problem about that because my system here was all removable storage detected.its thesame (SATA) ..If try to safely remove that you cannot remove because it was use by the system so don't worry about that.

I encoutered that problem 35 times already.
