:tazz: Hello,

I am an ESL teacher in China. I recieved a lenovo P4 computer with my appartment but the previous tennants deleted the multimedia audio controller drivers and I can not playback sound. I don't want to rip the computer appart to find out what company made the sound card because it is essentialy just a loaner. Unfortunately I cannot access Drivershaq for some reason. I tried contacting the company but they have not responded. I'd really like to get caught up on my Dr. Who and Family Guy from the last week so if anyone can provide an assist I'd appeciate it. Everything on the computer (even the display) is marked lenovo, I don't know if they make sound devices though.

The Sysem Specs I have been able to obtain:

It says P4 on the box but it's actually a Celeron 2.0 Ghz processor.
Microsoft XP Pro OS
256 MB ram
Nvidia GeForce 2 Mx/Mx400 Display Adaptor

That's all I can get that would be even this side of relevant. Any advice?

well, actually, that is why I said attach, rather than cut and paste, but it will do.
