Motherboard - sound card ?

  [DELETED] 23:55 13 Nov 2003

I appreciate it sounds a silly question - if you knew how naive I am it would sound perfectly logical- Could anyone please tell me how to find if I have built in sound on my motherboard.

Thank you

look at where your speakers are connected to

if they ate in a slot towards the bottom of the case and horizontal,chances are you have a soundcard.

if they are vertical and towards the top of the case,it may well be onboard.

aida32 personal etd will tell you what you have click here

install and click motherboard/motherboard and look for "intergrated devices" on the right or

click multimedia on the left and pci/pnp audio and it should say if you have a soundcard

there will be 3 small round coloured sockets (or less)just below the other ports on the back of your computer.If you have a sound card it will be lower down in a PCI slot,like your modem
