I couldn't find those specific ones right off.
You could download Driver Updater and see if it can find them for you - typically easier than doing all the searching yourself.

Are you sure it's DEV_4387 and not 4397?

Hi hnael

Is this sound card in a Desktop PC?
If so, is it possible for you to open the computer case and see if it has a sound CARD installed?
(if you don't see a sound card in one of the slots it will be a small on-board sound CHIP and probably very hard to see wring on it).

If this is an operational computer running Windows, then download and run Belarc Advisor, allow it to update, then look at the report it automatically creates and opens:
http://www.belarc.com/free_download.html

You might also get details by running the free version of Gabriel Topala's "SIW" (System Info for Windows):
http://www.gtopala.com/siw-download.html
Installer version:
http://www.gtopala.com/download/siw-setup.exe
Standalone Program:
http://www.gtopala.com/download/siw.exe

Save the attached file and rename it, changing the .TXT extension to .VBS.
 AudioDevice.txt
Open a CMD prompt and run this command:

CScript //NoLogo "C:\Path_To\AudioDevice.vbs"

(where "\Path_To\" should be the actual directory path to where you saved the file).

That MIGHT provide some clues.

You will get a link to a driver download if you take the side off the computer case, use a flashlight, and write down the manufacturer (Via in this case I believe) and the model number, then visit the support pages of the manufacturer's website.
