    well the computer say's nortgate but I was having a problem with it and someone rebuilt it for me and forgot to put back the audio and video drivers. So I dont know if the same parts have to be used or other parts from another type of computer can be used.

Heres what you could do and then we can get you the proper drivers.

Pop open the case. Usually there are 2 or 3 screws in the back holding one side (Usually the right side looking from the front)
Do that. and have a look at the mother board. On it there will be identifiers for the board. Either a make and model for the motherboard or writing on the audio chip or vid chip.
Now if you have extra cards in there try and write down what they are especially if your audio cable plugs into one, if it doesnt then dont worry about them

Doesnt matter if you know what you are doing, just make sure the power is off to the pc. and dont pull anything out :) a flashlight usually helps
Write down anything and everything you see in there and post it in here, then I can get you what you need just hit the ask button when you get me the information and i will get you what u need

Where can i get 845 gv m audio drivers for win 7

Try the manufacturer's website (manufacturer of the computer or manufacturer of the sound card). That's your best choice.

Get online and got to In the google search box type: "Acer Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating system when requested. Download and install the Audio drivers.

Try using the VLC Player. It comes with drivers and codec. I've seen it solve many sound and audio issues.

Try using VLC as your player. Go to and in the search box type "download vlc" (without the quotes). Look for the Video Lan download from site Download and install it. It downloads and installs in 3 minutes or so. It's a very fast player, smooth and it can play just about any type of dvd formats and media. It's totally FREE.

No sound

Open Internet Explorer then type in the address bar to go to Google. In the google search box you need to type your computer's manufacturer's name followed by support. For example if your computer is made by HP then type HP Support. Look for drivers and downloads from the manufacture's site and click the link. Once on the site you will have to type in your computer model number (Ex. HP Pavilion ZE2000) and the Operating System. Download and install the Audio Drivers that it shows you for your system.

Hi moyokshen115
You are probably missing the driver . For this , try to identify your sound card manufacturer and go to their site to download and install the correct driver . Identifying the sound card is not allways easy , you can ask this at the place where you bought the pc or google to the computer manufacturer's site .
Wish you good luck .

Find your model and name for your speaker.

Find driver tab. And update, It will need more time depending your pc/laptop.
If you dont have internet connection with that cpu, then you can find a google using other pc/laptop with internet. type your's device/hardware name/model +driver at google.good luck

I lost my msi motherboard cd, need help getting the drivers. cant update my nic card to be able to connect to the internet to use driver update software programs.


Before getting driver from manufacturer website you should know mother board model. no and year of manufacture etc etc.... This can be detected by a small software called belarc advisor(search at google, it's free download). Download and install it. It will detect the motherboard no., after getting the number u can search at google for driver download.

Good Luck

I dont ha no sound card i need 2 know where can i download drivers for my laptop

You can just google the "[laptop model] Drivers".
It works for most of the brands. HP, compaq laptops have their drivers in the brands own site and can be reached by googling.

Just google "model number audio driver " or "model number sound driver".. and download it .problem should be solved]

If your notebook is a HP brand see this link
