    Since I reformated my hard drive I dont know which is the correct audio driver to install for my sound card. Another problem is that I dont really know which sound card I have. How can I know which is my sound card?

    Before we reformated the PC the speakers worked, but now it shows that we dont have a sound card... look at the scan results.

    That scan did not find your audio device.

    Try looking in the Device Manager: rt. click My Computer then click manage then device manager then Sound, video, game controllers

    Or try running Everest

    Look under multimedia there.

    Under Multimedia in EVEREST I clicked PCI/PnP Audio. It showed an PCI item called: Intel 82801DB(M) ICH4(-M) - AC'97 Audio Controller [B-0].

    Is that my audio card?
