    I am in need of the drivers for the following devices;
    Multimedia Audio Controller - PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_24C5&SUBSYS_A0021458&REV_02
    PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_24C5&SUBSYS_A0021458
    PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_24C5&CC_040100
    PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_24C5&CC_0401
    PCI Modem - PCI\VEN_1057&DEV_3052&SUBSYS_30201057&REV_04\4&1A671D0C&0&00F0
    Video Controller (VGA Compatible) - PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2562&SUBSYS_25621458&REV_03\3&13C0B0C5&0&10

    The device is a clone PC that I recently formatted due to a virus infection. I have tried to search for the drivers online but keep getting sites that ask me to install some other software before I can get the drivers, but even if I do I will not get them


    Please assist

    Download and run the standalone version of siw.
    It will identify the installed hardware.
    Then you should be able to get drivers at the manufacturers
    website.

    hey, do you know the manufacturer for these devices, and the actual model, if not try disasembling the computer and looking at the cards/motherboard/chips for identifying markings

    Someone thought it was a good idea to use isoprophyl to remove all markings so I cannot ID the components in that manner.

    there are markings on the actual chips and they cannot be removed with alcohol because they are eched with a laser during the manufacturing process (however they can be filed off). the chip is the part that requires the driver and should have numbers and or letters that u can google to ID the chips then get the drivers, you may need a magnifing glass to see the digits.

    P.S. what are the specs for the machine, is it worth spending all this time on? i sell second hand pc's in Australia and P4s start at about $75, i imagin prices can't be all that much different where u are
