    Hi, There are several ways to ID your motherboard. Try this first:
    www.belarc.com

    You want the Free Download link there. Download Belarc Advisor to desktop, run it to install. Shows many motherboards, video, sound, chipset, and software.
    Your motherboard may be shown under "System or MainBoard"
    then, Audio for sound device. Best to get drivers for sound from company that made the computer...is it a name brand like Gateway? Do you have any CDs that came with the system?
    You can also look inside the computer....if that is not an option for you, try Belarc.
    Somewhere on the board itself is a label, either a paper one or printed directly on the board, in bigger print than the rest, an ID number....perhaps like this: MB6137 or SD-11
    MS6168 GA7VX
    There might also be an FCC ID number.
    Post what you can find.

    Actually, AIDA32 is probably a lot more likely to properly ID the motherboard, I've had better luck with it's ability to properly ID them.
