Google "belarc advisor" and install and run it. This will tell you if you have one and is free.

Or just as easily from System Information or Device Manager.

look at the back of the pc. If you have speaker / microphone sockets among the rest of the motherboard connectors it suggests onboard sound.

If you also have speaker / microphone sockets in a plate in one of the horizontal pci slots it suggests a sound card is installed
