    Is there an easier way to figure out the name of a soundcard so someone can install the drivers to get the sound working again?

    I don't know the name of it and neither does my friend and he has tried microsoft update, and the drivers updates arent listing it either, and he is too cpu illiterate to take out his soundcard and look for some sort of company name

    Any help on this issue?

    last time it happened to me, i had to open my desktop to find the chip.

    Although if yours is standard laptop/desktop, u can check configuration from the manufacturer's website too.

    C2H has it right... You'll have to remove the sticker ontop of the chip for some sound cards. Some chip manufacturers include: C-Media, NVidia, Creative, .....

    Google for "Sound Chipsets" or some variation and you'll find some other sound-chip manufacturers.

    Take out the card and look for a company name or model number. Google is very good at helping you find drivers for stuff like that.
