Have a look on the motherboard for some identifying marks printed on the board. For example K7S5A or GA7VA it'll be there somewhere and once you know the motherboard number the forum will be able to help out

Click on "standard/shareware" a little way down the page, then click on "sara standard".

As I just said. Click on the top "Sara Standard" then use the "thanks Terry" mirror site as the top link is dead. Regards G.

If you run Belac again and look under MULTIMEDIA it will tell you what sound card is installed
