the first thing to do is go to. click here .com
and download "everest home edition",run it on your p/c and it will tell you all about your motherboard and and most everythimg you want to know, for drivers i would suggest "driverguide.com", you just have to register ,and then search for thousands of drivers,come back here when you get the info regards acein1

First step is to identify the motherboard make. Easiest way I know is open the case up and have a look at the board your lookin for manufacturer name and a model number.

Once you've found this out try click here to find a manual for this board. This should help with what onboard sound it has. Try the manufactures website for the drivers first.

Normally its the chipset that the motherboard drivers provide so have a look in add /remove progs for a listing the mentions chipset.
