Does my computer have a Sound Card?
Thanks for your article on sound cards.
I was given a used computer and it doesn’t play any sound or music.
I am trying to find if it has a sound card already installed in it. If so I need to find out whether it is installed on the motherboard or whether it is an independent one. I can’t find it.
Obviously I don’t know much about this and I don’t really know what to look for. It looks like the computer is a Microsoft XP with a Legacy Audio Driver? Whatever that means..
Could really use some help. Thanks
Thanks for your question about whether your computer has a sound card or not. It seems that your computer probably does have a sound card, because of the audio drivers installed.
This means that it is probably an in-built sound card on the motherboard. However, it could be a separate card as well. What I would recommend is installing the motherboard drivers that hopefully would of come with the computer.
If you don’t know the motherboard type, you could download a program call CPUZ, which will tell you. Once you have the motherboard, do a Google search and download the Windows XP drivers.
Hopefully that will help,
