I'm having a problem with my sound. That problem being that I can't locate drivers for my speakers. Now I've had and have fixed this problem before. But in the past I had a program that scanned my whole system and told me my soundcard exactly by name, allowing me to search for the drivers more precisely. Does anyone know where I can get a another program like this? :tazz:

Hi there ;)

Why not do a google search - something like 'hardware scan utility', I did and got the following results:

I cannot personally vouch for any of these programs, but there are mainstream commercial products out there also. One I've heard alot of good things about is called 'Sandra'.

Find it here:

Note: sometimes these programs can misreport hardware, so always proceed with a bit of caution. It pays to simply open up your desktop pc and have a look at what's in there, then go to the vendors web site. More difficult with a laptop though :tazz:

Google away - hope that helps
