If you know the maker of the device and the model number then you can just go to the makers website and look for the downloads page and search for it there.

If you do not know the maker then you can still find it by doing the following:

  1. Open Device Manager (Control Panel>System>Hardware>Device Manager)
  2. The hardware whose drivers are missing will appear as Unknown device, so it's easier to locate the device.
  3. Right click on the unknown device and click on Properties.
  4. Under the Properties window click on Details tab and select Device Instance Id from the drop down box.
  5. You should see a code similar to this

    PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_27DC&SUBSYS_30868086
    &REV_01\4&1E46F438&0&40F0

  6. The portion of the code highlighted in RED is the Vendor ID and the portion highlighted in GREEN is the Device ID. In this example:

    Vendor ID = 8086
    Device ID = 27DC

  7. Once you have obtained both the IDs, proceed to PCI Database. There you can either search for the vendor from the vendor ID or directly get information about the device along with the vendor name by searching with the device ID.

Hello mureedg
Go to the manufacturer's site of your sound card and download the driver from there .
Eventually , if you have difficulties with identifying the sound controller , try using a Driver Wizard such as Free Driver Max from http://download.cnet.com/DriverMax/3000-18513_4-10572602.html or purchase some other one like Driver Detective you can easily find with Google .
Windows could also help : open the Device manager , click on the sound controllers \ driver and go for an update . Windows will search on the net .
Best regards ,
fanaudi .
