Can anyone help me find a driver for the soundcard that would be installed in the above machine, eMachine do not seem to provide support for anything this old, the "SKU" is: 683066,

if it helps the machine specs are:

1.70 GHz Intel Celeron
128MB Ram
40 GB HD

Many Thanks either way!

Have you tried to update the driver

Heres the website click here I can find no mention of the 170 in any of the series. Suggest you have another look on the back of the PC. And the UK site click here doesn't mention it either, do you no longer have the operating system disk the driver should be on that?

are sure its not the 270 emac...Advance AC97 audio is what i think is your sound card

These are the details on the back of the machine:

Serial No: QIM29 004 00343
Part No: 511551

Defo a eMachine 170, baring in mind this computer is quite old, friends computer doesnt have any discs, have attempted to "Update Driver" through Device Manager however it isnt able to locate any, machine is online so would have searched Windows Update,

Thanks for the quick response, I wanna get rid of it asap! Preferably with sound.
