Hi everbody,
I have a pc with a sound card built-in.But unfortunately I have lost the driver CD.So I can't use it in win98. But fortunately I can use it in winxp because ,it automatically detects it.
The PC is manufactured by fujitsu-siemens ,so all the manuals are in German which I don't understand.
But now I was to use it in win98 , so pls help me to find the driver for that.

Greetings, Dineth!

You need to find the model number of your ____ card.  Use Belarc Advisor or Aida

Belarc Advisor
http://www.belarc.com/free_download.html
or
Aida
http://www.aida32.hu/aida32.php

Then you need to go to the manufacturer's website or www.driverguide.com to find the driver for your operating system.

Best wishes, war1

Mother of all drivers sites

Statistics: 23,245 devices, 3106 vendors, 52,489 files. With numbers like that, it's easy to believe the site's slogan, "Welcome to the only device driver site you'll ever need." Drivers On-Line finds the software to match your hardware. You can use the Driver Wizard to quickly find the right drivers instead of going to a product's vendor (and getting lost on their unusable Web site in search of the needed drivers). All the drivers and software available from this site are stored as ZIP files, so you will need to have software to extract the individual files from them. If you're using Win9x/NT, there is the option of downloading any driver as an executable file, thus avoiding the need to install any additional software. The Web site has a free Driver Wizard available for downloading and running to identify the components you have on the PC. After it completes the evaluation, click on the link to go to the Web site and get a list of the latest drivers available.

Sound Cards

Try going to and downloading the sound card detector for your soundcard.  It might work.

if there any numbers on the cards, one of them may be an FCC id code.
