    Easy wiht the details.


    Is it on board? If so, what kind of board? Is it enable din BIOs? Do you have new drivers off manufacturers website?

    Is it a pci card? What brand? Do you have new drivers off manufacturers website?

    I just reformatted mine, and had the same problem. I just went to "update drivers" "allow to search the web" or whatever. worked like a charm and I didn't have to dig around to remember what kind of onboard sound I had.

    ...which works great until you have a computer with a network card that Windows won't recognize until you manually install drivers.

    Searching for drivers online is like knowing how to make boot disks -- it's hopelessly obsolete, but absolutely necessary in 1% of situations.

    I'll never have the problem. I only use DLink network cards... but I completely understand what you are saying. I have a couple of clients that insist on keeping their 8-10 year old computers and finding drivers for those really sucks ass. I finally started making a disc for each client with their specific drivers on it.

    I bet you could get them to upgrade if you were willing to personally migrate all of their shite onto new machines.

    yeah... 1 client finally bought a new machine. It was the $400 laptop from walmart a couple weeks ago, and I was actually amazed they were willing to spend $500 (tax, etc) on a new computer, despite the fact that they can easily afford it. Now I only have a couple more to bring into the somewhat modern era.
