Hi Andre3000,

After identifying those onboard devices, you can look at the manufacturers website for drivers or take a look at http://www.driverguide.com (loginname: drivers password:all)

Greetings,

there's a serial number CEN??? look it up on the NET it'll tell you who made the card - this trick works for any electrical item with a CEN

Solution 1 (maybe a little tricky, but no software needed):
Manifacturer:
When you boot up you will most likely see a long serial number at the bottom screen. Write down that exact number (press [Pause]if it boots to quickly). Then you should take a visit at www.wimsbios.com where you can determine the manifacturer of the board
Model:
Wims BIOS has a large list of matching model numbers, and if you're lucky your motherboard model number is already listed there. If not, try the Sandra method below:

Solution 2:
Get Sisoft Sandra at www.sisoftware.co.uk and see if it detects the Manifacturer and maybe even the model.

Finalizing:
Then search google or look up the manifacturer website from www.wimsbios.com
