Try this. Put the PCI32 folder on your C: drive. Now use your mouse and click the start button, then click RUN. type CMD. A DOS window will pop-up.
In the DOS window type 'CD \' without the ' ' hit enter on your keyboard that should bring you to the c:\ . Next type 'cd pci32' enter to enter the pci32 folder Finally type 'pci32.exe' enter to run the program. It shouldn't close now.

    Basically PCI32 scans your PCI bus and detects what chipset a card has on it. If you copy and paste the text from the word file I can help you identify which part is your sound card and perhaps locate drivers for it.

The images i load for setting as a wall paper is stretched one and it is too big for the screen.How do i make it a portrait size


Try downloading this program to resize your wallpaper. Generally on Windows you simply right-click an area on your desktop and click :properties" to configure your background. The simplest thing to do is find your screen resolution and do a [Google] search for example: 1440 x 900 3D landscape, Define what you nedd and match your resolution. In WinXP just click the start icon and click "RUN", Copy and paste this command into the run box: dxdiag.exe a window will appeaar and you click "yes". When the new window opens click "Display" then scroll down to "Current Display Mode".

In Windows 7 and Vista click on the start icon and type the dxdiag.exe command into the search window and it'll appear in the above menu. Double click that item and proceed to find your resolution as stated above.

Hope this helps,

Tip

Renaming The Start Button:


To rename the start button, you will need a hex editor.
My preference is UltraEdit

Copy the \windows\explore.exe file to a new name (e.g. explorer_1.exe)
With the hex editor, open that file and go to offset 412b6
You will see the word start with blanks between each letter
Edit it be any 5 characters or less
Save the file
Boot to DOS
Copy the existing c:\windows\explorer.exe to explorer.org
Copy explorer_1.exe to explorer.exe
You will also need to replace the explorer.exe in the c:\windows\system32\dllcache file as well with the new one.
Note: If the partition is NTFS and you can't access the files from DOS:

Start Regedit
Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ CurrentVersion \ Winlogon.
Change the value of Shell from Explorer.exe to explorer_1.exe

Do a file search for cmd.exe and then you can create a shortcut on your desktop pointing to it and then in double quotes put the location of the application you are trying to execute, ie.. It should be located on c:\windows\system32 - cmd.exe

C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe - in Properties Target and put this in double quotes and then your application with the full path in double quotes after that.

EFICMgr:

Your original solution was provided by jrdtechnet, and if you wish further contact directly with that expert, it is best to do so as a further post on your original issue. Alternatively, you should see that expert listed on your profile page. Clicking on their link will send you to ask this question directly of them.

I am not experienced with PCI32, but the solution I find most helpful in regard to drivers is as follows. (The system basically does the work for you, and you should not have to do anything but what you are instructed within the process.):

Since detecting the type of equipment you have, and its numerous technical specifications, can be quite difficult, it may be easiest to use a site that will scan your system and determine the updates needed. Three available sites: www.driveragent.com, www.drivers.com, and www.drivershq.com. You may find this more helpful than trying to search for one individual driver, as that can be very difficult. If none of these things helps, please post back as to the outcome of the above. Otherwise, thanks for rating FixYa!

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: https://fjallfoss.fcc.gov/oetcf/eas/reports/GenericSearch.cfm
