    The computor was build at a PC shop. What I know is the card is called Audio Codex. I think the serial number is: F082P302H4M11796. The FCC # is: 5RJFB09BAWI.

    Not sure I know any more then that.

To identify your card try this. DOWNLOAD THIS unzip and double-click pci32.exe. I DOS window will pop-up with a bunch of information. Copy and paste the results here. To copy and paste information in a DOS window, right-click anywhere on the black, click select all to highlight everything white. Now on your keyboard hit control+C. Then paste it here control+p.

I did a search of your FCC ID # and nothing was returned. It could not identify your product. Please be more specific. Was there no model #? Also, the main chip (usually the biggest) should have a model number. Try finding that.

By the way, to search FCC ID #'s, go here:

I want install audio in my copmuter. how can it?

You can buy an audio card to put in yourself. unplug the computer and open the side panel. Lay the box on its side and look for a slot that is compatible with the card. If there are no slots left you are out of luck. Most computers have an on board audio. If that is the case and you meant to ask how to get and install audio drivers then look up the make and model of your main-board. Go to their website and choose the operating system that you have and the model number etc you also have to chose 32 bit or 64 bit so you have to know what kind of set up you have before you choose. Download audio drivers and any other drivers that you find on the website and burn them to a cd and file away for future reference. It is best to tape it inside the computer case when it is not being used. To install the drivers put your cd-rom in and use windows explorer or my computer to find your cd and examine the cd. You may have to copy the files and paste them in a file folder of your choosing on C: drive or even better on a second hard-drive where a severe windows crash will not destroy your important files. If they need to be extracted from an archive i usually install WinRar and each driver archive can be extracted to its own folder. Downloading each driver can be confusing as to what it was originally for so make a new folder with the name of the type of driver eg. Audio Driver, Video Driver, etc. and place the appropriate driver each into their own folder. To verify what drivers are missing use control panel/device manager (change Category View to Large Icon View to make the path easier to find). Any device that has an exclamation mark is one that is missing a driver (your audio should be one of them) if you installed the drivers but the device manager still shows problems.. right click the device in device manager and choose update driver. Sometimes this can be done without downloading the drivers from the website.

Looking for audio drivers

That'll require the name of the sound card or audio chipset its using. If its integrated, its usually some flavor of AC97. Otherwise, you can hit up the manufacturer's website. Often times you can simply Google all or part of the name to track down drivers for anything! Someone's posted it somewhere most likely even if its one of the hard to find drivers. If I knew more, I could point you right to it but right now you can use that information to track it down fairly readily. Absolute WORST case scenario when you can't find anything on the device like a system pull, you can use the FCC ID to sniff out what it is and who made it! There's always an option. : )

I Can't hear a sound, after I re-format my computer... I tried to instal realtek Ac97, no difference at all... :((

You have formatted the sound Card driver(also called audio card driver).
You need to give the following three pieces of information in order for your audio driver to be downloaded from the internet if you do not have the CD for drivers that come with the hardware.

  1. You need to give your current Operating system (Windows XP, Windows Vista or Linux....etc)
  2. Your sound Card Manufacturer (Vendor).
  3. The Model number of your sound card.
Good Luck!

I changed my hard drive cos it was bad.the new one i got is working fine but no sound comes from anything i play on my pc, pls need assistance now

Go to start, control panel, sounds & audio devices. Make sure that the mute box is unchecked. If that is good, then you may have to download the audio driver for your device again. If you have the sound device integrated on the motherboard, you should have a driver disk for it for the motherboard. If not, check online for your motherboard and download the driver. If you have a sound card, once again, download the driver from the disk or if no disk, go to site of the model of the card and download the driver. Hope this helps!

My driver no. Is ST3160215A but sound is not instal i want instal the sound driver

It seems you've made a mistake telling us about your problem. Please let me know the sound card model (brand-model name not the model number) name, or if it's onboard, let me know the motherboard version name and make. The number you mentioned here is the Hard disk model that's installed on your system which is made by seagate.
Good luck.
Thanks for using FixYa/
