Talking is there a way to identify what hardware that i got? I need drivers!

sponsored links

 
Hi, I have a computer factory windows xp home edition preinstalled, anyways the preinstalled got all the drivers that my PC needed...

but then I lost the windows xp factory disk so i have to install in my windows 2k pro. but the win2k doesn't got all the drivers that i need like my sound card, video, ethernet card drivers!!!

and the things here is that I don't know what kind of sound card or video card I have....

so is there a way or a program that i can use to identify what kind of video card, sound card and other hardware in my PC that doesn't yet has a drivers installed?

Thanks a lot for any helps!!! lol!!!

You could try going to system properties and see if it says what the device is otherwise you can open your PC up and take a look at the cards it's normally written in white on the board. HTH

Unfortunately, when Windows can't recognize the hardware, I don't think any software can help. You should have gotten the hardware info while WinXp was still operational.

If your sound, video and NIC are mobo integrated, identifying the mobo will help. Try [url=***********.sisoftware.co.uk/]Sandra.

Otherwise, as said above, you'll need to pull the cards off to check for makes/models.
