Hi there,

Well, I have another problem, my friend just got a new pc w/o OS, so I installed windows XP, he got the computer
from Comp USA but the pc had no OS, once I installed Windows XP Pro. I notice that the system does not have sound
the sound card is already installed on the pc..the Motherboard is an Intel. my question is, do I need to search for
the Drivers under Motherboard brand over the internet? and if that the case where can I get all the info for this motherboard?
I went to Bios and the only specs that I found regarding the motherboard was Intel number of the Motherboard which is IDQ9656F ...Product name..DQ9656F...Firmware V.2.0.5.1124 and version AAD41676-305, Is this the info I need to look
for the drivers? I also have the S/N of the motherboard. Or there's something else that I need to do to get the sound working?


Thanks guys!! :thumbsup:

Download and run S.I.W. It will give you all sorts of info on the internals of the system. It will also indicate whether it's onboard sound or a soundcard. That determines where you will search for the download
