How can I find out what type of motherboard?

How can I find out what type of motherboard I have? I need to buy a sound card that is compatible with my motherboard. I just got Windows 7 and there are no audio drivers for it on the manufactures websites. So I need to buy a sound card but I don't know where to start looking.

Don't worry about it, most motherboard supports expansion devices and most common device that can fit into slots are PCI devices. Buy a Windows 7 ready PCI sound card and place it in one of the slots of your motherboard.

Thanks for using Fixya.

I need to buy a Multiscreen Card Colorgraphic Predator Type LT 4PCI 612304


It is going to be hard to replace the exact graphics card due to its age. Your best bet is to replace it with another graphics card that is compatible with your motherboard. The good news is many cards should be compatible with your board since there are very few connection types available.

Post which motherboard you have or simply do a search for what type of graphics card type/connection it accepts. I believe it will be a PCI or PCI Express type card. To make it easiest on yourself make sure the new card you buy has the type of monitor cables you would like to use.

There are really only 3 types it could use and most likely it will use a VGA (blue smallish cable that only accepts pins) and/or DVI (White longer connection with a square and pins).

Hope that helps.

My laptop is HP Pavilion Entertainment PC.now got Windows 7 installed.sound not to be heard


Find the information about your audio, is it on the motherboard or is it through a sound card. Is *********** board / sound card compatible with windows 7? Do you have the drivers installed if they exist? If none of this is compatible you need to buy a newer windows 7 compatible sound card and install it.

My pc does not have sound, it says no audio device , i used window xp 2002 pack 2, my pc intel petium


You need to buy a separate sound card it is because your onboard sound card was damage and to able to have sound on your computer. Just buy a PCI Sound Card and that is a compatible sound card for your motherboard. To install your sound card on your motherboard follow this steps:
1. Insert the PCI Sound Card in the PCI Slot (White Slot).
2. Turn On your computer and wait if the computer are recognize the device. Then if the dialogue box was appear "Found New Hardware".
3. Insert the CD Driver in your CD-ROM.
4. Click the selection box "Yes, this time only" then click the Next button and read the instruction to finished the installation process.

My pc boots but no video is displayed so my only guess it the onboard video on the motherboard is faulty. can i buy another video card and remedy the problem?


You can indeed install another video card, but this may not be your trouble. Are you absolutely sure your computer is running normally except for the video? That is, do you hear all the other sounds that usually go along with normal startup (hard drive activity, Windows startup sounds through the speakers, etc.)? It's very unusual for a motherboard to fail so that everything works except for video out to the monitor. You might be facing a computer with some other issues, like memory or a deeper motherboard problem, causing it not to start.

If you do decide to install a new video card, be sure you get one that's compatible with the motherboard (proper type connector) and power supply (not a super whiz-bang card that may need more power than your current supply can provide).

Your ASUS motherboard model has on-board sound. You are asking what 3rd party card to install?

Your motherboard supports:

A 3rd party sound card of your choosing that will fit in one of these vacant slots will do nicely.

I dont have sound


Good day sir, sound problems solutions could be any of the following:
  • You did not install a sound card, the enlight enpc has no built in sound port, so you need to install one, I recomend Creative Labs or Realtek sound card, (any sound card will do if you like).
  • If you buy one, there is a CD driver, use the CD to install the sound card driver files.
  • Or buy a USB sound card. (as long as you are using the XP windows version for compatibility.
Install the sound card on any available PCI slot and use the CD to install the driver. thats it!

Search "Aida32" on Google and download it. What you can do with this program is you can check what type of sound card you have. Once you find out the sound card you have, go to the manufacturers website and download the drivers for your sound card. Im guessing that you would need sigmatel driver. Search sigmatel and download the one compatible with your motherboard.
