I'm fixing a non-brand-name pc for my husband's aunt. The motherboard was identified as a VIA Technologies KM266-8235. I used Belarc to determine the system.

There is no sound.

The motherboard has the sound card integrated.

Each boot brings up the fact that it is new hardware and attempts to install the driver for it. (I uncheck the box that reads not to remind me of this.)

Where can I find the drivers for this motherboard? I've contacted the company that made it, but because it is over three years old, there are no records.

Thanks.

Cass

Hi Cassiopeia

I've contacted the company that made it

And who exactly is that?. Via doesn't now nor ever has manufactured motherboards, just chipsets.
Depending on the motherboard manufacturer, it comes with two different on-board audio configurations. (AC97 or C-Media).

Download/install platform drivers first, then audio drivers.
