Hello Experts:

I have build in sound card with my motherboard...I think so...because, it does not have a separate card for it. and when I go into my system control panel, under the sound card, there is a question mark there. and I was not able to find the driver for it. What kind of information do you guys need to help me...I am sort of new to the hardware site of it...

My pc is open...so, I can peak;;;;

But the problem is though, the pc I am trying fix does not have winzip and went to the winzip download site...the program 2 mb....but floopy - 1.44. So, is there any other winzip program out there that I can put it in a floopy

To install the drivers:
Go to Control Panel, System, Device Manager.
Click on the device you want for the drivers. For example your Eathernet drivers
Click on Properties
Driver
Update driver
Indicate where the drivers are located on your HD.

That is all there is to it. No magic. You did the hard part of finding the drivers.
Now if it is your Eathernet card, then you should see under the card after the drivers are installed:
Netword Adapter
Dial Up Adapter #2{VPN Support}
Microsoft Virtual Private Networking Adapter
Your Eathernet card

Then under Network in the Control Panel you should have:
Client for Microsoft Networks
Dial up Adapter
Dial up Adapter #2 {VPN Support}
Microsoft Virtual Private Networking Adapter
Yor Eathernet Adapter
NDISWAN -> Microsoft Virtual Private Networking Adapter
TCP/IP Dial up Adapter
TCP/IP Dial up Adapter #2 {VPN Support}
TCP/IP  Yor Eathernet card

Now follow the procedure. Write down each step as to what you see in case you have a problem
This way we can help uyou.
