Take a look at the back of the computer.......where do the speakers plug into? Near the mouse, keyboard, etc.? Of further away in a longer narrow slot?

That would mean you have onboard sound....it's built into the motherboard, it's not a separate sound card, i.e. a Soundblaster card, etc.

this means that i have to install the sound driver from my motherboard cd. right!!! it install Crystal Audio
if i dont not install from the motherboard cd and let windows detect it the driver that windows installs is not supported i mean i dont get the sound

I think that's been answered for you before ;) The answer hasn't changed...it doesn't matter whether you have onboard sound or an add-in card....you MUST use the sound drivers for THAT sound card.....period, end of statement, do not pass go, do not collect any money ;)

Did I make that clear :)
