Hi! This is the information that you need to look at:

Display:
Video Adapter VIA CastleRock
3D Accelerator VIA CastleRock

Multimedia:
Audio Adapter VIA AC'97 Enhanced Audio Controller

Also if you remove the case to your tower and look at your video card or mother board it will give you the specifics. Then do a google search for your drivers. Make sure you shut down your computer, unplug it and leave it set for 10 minutes before opening. Then touch the metal frame to ground yourself or use an anti static wrist band if you touch anything inside.

Hi saacee...

You should find most of your drivers Here.

Those listed under the "Other" category are likely the dhipset drivers...install those first.
