anyone know of motherboard wisard? or sound card wizard? I have an old computer but need drivers for these, or any software that will auto detect the units inside.
Hmmm I guess we could use some more information here...
Brand + type of the hardware, what software you are looking for and what platform you are running on (Windows XP for example).
You can try taking apart the old PC an dlook at the actualy cards and try finding brand names or model numbers. Sometimes, even the oddest most unheard of generic brand names can be foung via Google.
had a look inside but no numbers or ID, but years ago this software was usefull for units with built in sound card, which I am now trying to fix, since then I've lost the software
During boot the computer will check memory for errors and scan for ide devices, if you look at the bottom you'll probably see a text string, what does it say?It should somewhat similar to this one: 02/14/97-i430VX,ITE8680-2A59GL1FC-00//Danne
could do it that way I suppose, but that would only give mother board and not sound, but there has to be an easier way??
Once you find out the manufacturer of the MB as Dizzy said, if it has built in sound just go to the web site of the manufacturer. not much easier than that!Unless they no longer have then available. but you should be able to find out what onboard sound it has.
true, but the software did make life much easier, I actually found the software on "karldavies's " website, but that seams to have gone by the wayside
Aida might tell you... google it!
