run windows update and when it asks you to install exspress or custom click custom and on the left there should be a section that says hardware and it may be in there. good luck :tazz:

I wouldn't expect too much help from SPM Micro.......

I have the same laptop. Your hardware is as follows:

Video : SiS M650 (Ven 1039 Dev 6325)
Sound: SiS 7012 (Ven 1039 Dev 7012)

The drivers should be available from www.sis.com, or www.driverguide.com

If these drivers do not work for you, open your System Information (MSInfo32.exe) and have a look at the "Components / Problem Devices" listings.

On the PNP Device ID Section for each device you should see a string of characters much like this "PCI\VEN_1039&DEV_7012&SUBSYS_04001558&REV_A0\3&267A616A&0&17"

What you need to know from this the the Vendor ID (in this case VEN_1039 so Vendor ID is 1039), and Device ID (in this case DEV_7102 so the Device ID is 7012. You can use these ID's to figure out what hardware it is.

If you look up the Vendor ID in this case, (1039) you get SiS
And the the Device ID (7012), you get the SiS 7012 Sound chip, thus you need the SiS 7012 sound drivers for that chip.

You can look up Vendor and Device ID's at www.pcidatabase.com.

Hope this helps!
