    a custom built machine that i'm working on apprenlty has an onboard sound card, its not meant to be fancy or nothing but the sound is not working but the box definitly says there should be sound but all i get is a beep coming from the MB. how do i found out what motherboard i have so that i can download the appropriate driver to run the sounds bit of the mb. i'm running on XP
    PS the disk i have appaers th have the incorrect driver none of them seem to be compatible with XP and certainly do not make the sound work.

    If your computer boots up and runs, download and run Aida32.

    If the computer does not boot up, you have to open the case and take a look at the motherboard. It should have the model number somewhere on it. (Some brands make it easier to find than others).

    Find the motherboard name. Under Computer -> Summary.

    Then go the manufacturer's website and find your motherboard downloads and they'll have the sound drivers.
