To late Already opened them,Mcafee gave both sites a red mark,But as I have already opened them ,I am as well looking to see if anything of interest,

Had a good look round,Got a rough idea of what I am looking for,Got close to one of them, Might have done me,But unfortunately Mcafee Suggests not to download anything from this particular site.I think it was Stuarti that put me onto Mcafee Site advisor, Never bothered me before , I would just have opened any site, And went in,Bit more carefull now, Anyhow thanks for your help,Any other help welcome,

download he driver and scan with your AV and AS BEFORE opening.

What I need is someone to tell me, This is the one you want,Never done this before so unsure of what to pick,At the moment no sound at all, And problems with the Nvidia G Force Graphics driver,I think it may be a conflict between the Sound and graphics,Both of them have Code 10 error beside them.Unfortunately There was no tools or driver back up disc to use after computer crashed.Have been told that it is a Microsoft problem,Downloading the wrong drivers, Help.

nvidea graphics driver is for all nvidia cards, in theory the latest one is best but an older one will work.

The simple answer to your question is to go to the C-Media website:

click here

Windows System Information will reveal the chipset used.

I used to have a C-Media 8738 onboard sound chipset - excellent device and also available in PCI form from several manufacturers.

There are also 9xxx versions and most of them are multi-channel, £D etc capable.
