I need a program to identify my hardware devices
Hi, I am unsure as to what model of sound device I have, and need to download the drivers for it.
I know it is a High def 7.1 realtek sound device, but not sure of the exact model.

I have had simalar experiences in the past with other hardware too, where I had to guess which drivers to download, because I wasn't sure what exact model I had.

It is an on board sound card, but the sound device drivers I downloaded with the motherboard chipset drivers, seems to be incorrect, or corrupt, So I am going to try and find the drivers manually through Realtek.


Is there actually a FREE program out there that can identify the name of the sound device on my computer?

often these programs need the drivers installed to identify the hardware - but here are a few free configuration programs

I think belarc needs the driver, NOT sure about SIW - System Information for Windows - maybe worth trying that first

online scan

Great standalone program with pdf and email output
