    If you go HERE, and read my post. You will notice a link to the free Everest programme. It will give you lots of info about your system.

    If it turns out that you have onboard sound, you will need to go to your mobo manufacturers website for the sound drivers.

    However, if it turns out that you have a separate soundcard, then you can get the drivers from the soundcard manufacturers website.

    BTW Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    If your system is an oem such as Dell/Gateway/Hp etc, go to your machines manufacturers website. You will be able to download the sound drivers etc from there.

    If your machine is a non oem system, then you will need to go to the mobo manufacturers website for the drivers.
