click here but the drivers you need aren`t listed although may be useful. I`ll keep looking but could you copy and paste the info from Belarc for each of the above items on the forum - I`m sure we can find these drivers from other sources.

Sorry - The graphics is the Twister one - Two to go. The Network Card is a VIA Compatible Fast Ethernet Adapter and sound is Avance AC'97 Audio for VIA (R) Audio Controller. Just finding the links now.

By the way the info on the entire system is click here

Audio click here

Ethernet Adapter from Via click here but check the Belarc info to see if it gives you a clue as to the exact one. (May be listed under System Info for the motherboard - look for a corresponding Model Code)

johndrew - thanks for the input but none of those links provide a direct link to a suitable driver and paying for one is not an option! Download these driver scanners at your own peril ;o)

You`ll have to post the System Model and Main Circuit Board details from Belarc and I`ll do my best!
