How do you know if your PC's motherboard has an integrated sound card?
The way you can tell if your PC motherboard has a built on sound card is by looking at the ports on the back of the PC. Above is a picture of a sound card. You will see blue, black, green, orange, pink, and grey colors the colors you see are the sound ports where you plug in your mic, headphone/speakers etc.
You can tell if a PC motherboard has an integrated sound card by looking at the connectors in the back. If you find a group of 3-6 audio sockets at the bottom of the motherboard (left side of the rear of the PC), it does. If you cannot find these sockets, or you find them in the expansion card area in one of the slots, then it doesn't have integrated sound. The standard color for regular stereo output is green, and the pink socket is for a microphone. The others vary in function and are for line-in, line-out, and surround sound.
Why is the display not working after a BSOD with irql less than or equal error for both the graphics card and the integrated card on motherboard?
Sounds like the integrated video card died. An integrated component can fail, just like an add-on card can. Don't dispair though, it doesn't mean you need to replace your motherboard. You can purchase an add-on card, you will need to know if you can use a PCI or AGP card. You can probably use a PCI card. Most motherboards will automatically disable the integrated video when you insert an add-on card. Be sure to ground… Read More
What is the difference between an integrated and a non-integrated system board? Answer: A "system board" is another name for motherboard. Therefore integrated and non-integrated system boards are two types of motherboards. An integrated system board has multiple components integrated into the board itself. These may include the CPU, video card, sound card, and various controller cards. A non-integrated system board uses installable components and expansion cards. For example, a non-integrated system board may allow… Read More
If it is on a laptop, then it is. If of is on a desktop then you have to look at the plug. Open your computer case, if you network plug is on a card (card may look like you video card and others around it) then it is not integrated. Integrates is just a way of saying built on the motherboard. Just because you may haven integrated nic, does not mean cannot add a… Read More
It depends on what you are doing and if you have a desktop or a laptop. If you are a gamer, then you will know if you need to upgrade to a better video card to play the game. If not, then you will probably be fine with the integrated one, unless you are running high - end business programs. Oh, and if you have a laptop then you cannot upgrade or change the video… Read More
Assuming you are talking about a desktop PC, there are 3 that i know of. PCI, AGP, and Integrated. PCI and AGP are different ways of attaching specific retail cards. Integrated cards are attached to your motherboard and are difficult to remove. not all PC's can support all 3 card types.
Because you need to install a driver for the internal sound car. Check the motherboard manufacture website for new drivers. If I don't know what card I have, or where it's located, how do I know which driver to install?
Example sentence - I do not know how to replace the sound card.
Just reimaged your machine and you cannot find the video controller driver how do you tell what kind of card you have?
The easiest solution is this: Open up your computer chassis and LOOK. The more advanced operating systems will usually check for updated drivers automatically, so this isn't a issue. Some video "cards" are actually video chipsets integrated into a motherboard...and you can find the motherboard specifications online if you know the model numbers (also obtained by looking)
The bus, for example: PCI-Express (x1, x4, x16) or PCI, or AGP. To imagine this for yourself, it's the slot in your pc, on your motherboard, with that slot, your video card will have to be compatible with. this means, you can't insert a PCI-Express Video Card into an AGP slot. :)
If the sound does not work, it is possible that the sound card is broken.
if you don't already know, you probably shouldn't mess with it, if its broken, replace it, or take it to a PC store
One sure-fire way is to open the case and look. If there is a RJ-45 socket (looks like a large phone jack) on the back that does not necessarily mean that the network is on a card, it could be integrated into the motherboard. The network card might also be a wireless card. That being the case, you ought to see an antenna sticking out of one of the card slots. Some older cards may… Read More
Yes. You need to find and download a driver for your sound card. Since we do not know what sound card you have in your computer, we cannot provide a link to a download for it.
replace the sound card with one you know is good. pg 486 at 6th edition.
You have to know a full sound card name. After that you go to the manufacture website and find support->drivers, after that you will have to choose your sound card name from a dropdown list. And press download.
From the maker's website for your sound card. If you don't know the sound card maker, it may list the name in the DirectX diagnostic tool. Go to 'start', 'run', type in dxdiag and hit enter. Look under the 'sound' tab.
I don't know how old this post is but I have the original disk for this sound card and I can make you a copy. contact me at email@example.com
A graphics card is found on your mother board. Your Central Processing unit is completely different I'm afraid. An integrated graphics card means it will be used as RAM if its not needed anywhere else. Dedicated Graphics is naturally better than Integrated but it can only be used as graphics power. I'm not entirely sure what you were trying to get from this. But I hope this helps
No. Sound cards are pieces of hardware. You can't download one any more than you could download a new car. You can, however, download a driver for your existing sound card, as long as you know its make and model.
the monitor works and the video card and the power supply but i don't know if its the CPU chip or the motherboard how can i tell whats wrong
Find out the make and model of your Motherboard, Then check on their website to see the specifications of it and see what expansion card slots it has.
you know you just pataka it MAORANA THANK YOU
Does most devices connected to the computer communicate directly with the monitor to carryout a task?
Few computer devices communicate directly to the monitor...the only one is the video card. Some video cards are built into the motherboard, called an integrated video card, and some fit into an expansion slot like an AGP slot, a PCI slot, or a PCI-E slot. In fact, computers run JUST FINE without a monitor attached....the monitor is there only so you know what the computer is doing. All other devices inside or attached to the… Read More
Add RAM! Up to the limit that your motherboard can support. Open the case, remove the old, smaller memory card, plug in a larger memory card that is compatible with the OLD memory card. You add more RAM. The motherboard on your computer has sockets to take RAM. There are different types of RAM so you need to get the right version. There is a limit to the size of the RAM that your Motherboard… Read More
I don't Know I have the same problem even in Wanted game !!! But my sound card works well . Realtek High Defenation ..
In order for your computers operating system to be able to interface with any hardware device (such as a sound card) it needs the proper software to tell it how to (drivers). So sound card drivers are the software your computer needs to be able to use your sound card. Often in cases where the Operating System (OS) has been reinstalled, or has recovered from some sort of crash or some system file corruption, a… Read More
a computer with lots of ram (more or equal to "8gb ddr3") , dual or quad processor (2.5-3.6 GHZ (speed)) by amd or intel, if your work is not graphics intensive (ie just making spreadsheets/letters) the intel integrated graphics is included on mid range intel processors, otherwise get seperate graphics card from amd or nvidia. **** IMPORTANT:= network card/interface (on motherboard) made by INTEL ,since you will be conecting to the internet for work. ****… Read More
by studying the motherboard data sheet
there can't be a best. because you can't exchange graphics cards for dell inspiron m5010 because the graphics card is part of the motherboard. i know this because i have one my self. in fact im using it to answer this question.
Many times there will be an on-board graphics card in addition to a graphics card seated in an expansion slot. You should be able to tell by looking for VGA/DVI/HDMI inputs in more than one slot or directly on the Motherboard.
The "core2duo" is older and basically 2 processing units, where the Core I series is the latest. I3, I5, and I7 are the newest and operate at much better speeds and usually has a pretty good graphics card integrated into the motherboard. HD2500 I believe it's called. If you ever want some very good specific information on everything computers, you should check out search up game debate some time. They have everything you could want… Read More
I just got a new motherboard with same sockets but my speakers aren't working. Motherboard model is P4SD. Everything else works fine. Do i need new drivers and if so where can i get them?
If your sound does not work, most likely you need drivers. First of all make sure that you know your motherboard model. After that go to the motherboard manufacture website, for instance, you have Asus. Go to asus.com choose your country. Go to support, locate drivers and so on.
The main way to tell which expansion card is the video card is to look at the plug. If it has a VGA socket, a display port socket, HDMI, etc., then you will know it is a video card. You may identify some of the chips on the card as being RAM, or you might find a fan on it, but these features are not exclusive to video cards. If that is the place where… Read More
Most often this is caused by your sound card drivers failing to load. You probably need to reinstall your soundcard drivers. Simply do a google search for your sound card plus the words 'driver download' & you should be able to find them in a jiffy. If you dont know what soundcard you have, please see the question "How do you find out what sound card you have?" linked below.
I have an HCL infiniti computer Which 'multimedia audio controller' driver should i be using I don't know your motherboard number?
so first get me a clear picture about the problem problem 1: did you formate the hard disk and installed OS again? problem 2: did you install a new sound card or tv tuner card ? just find hcl infinti computer series or serial number that can help to identifie the type of computer u are using
safe mode does not load all the drivers - if your sound card driver was faulty and you tried to use safe mode then if it loaded this driver then any problems would remain. The only way I know of to get sound in safe mode is to manually load the sound card driver with the command prompt
Integrated Design Environment (IDE) Also know as an Integrated Development Environment or Integrated Debugging Environment.
The custom built computer will usually have the maximum amount of Random Access Memory installed on the motherboard, a hard disc drive which is very large, and periphreal equipment which is tailored to the users needs. However, a custom built computer does not qualify for any tech support, other than what the builder will offer. Nor is there a warranty, other than what the builder will offer. Software will have to be purchased seperately in… Read More
PCI- E, AGP and PCI are the different slots on your motherboard that the graphics card can go into, and different GPUs fit in one of these slots. PCI - E is the fastest port at the moment, so AGP and PCI video cards are declining. All computers have quite a few PCI ports but most modern motherboards have PCI - E ports and not AGP. If you are buying a GPU, you will need… Read More
Hi, I believe the GeForce FX5200 is a 128MB DDR video card and its compatible with an AGP 8x interface. Since I have the same motherboard, P4VXASD2, I know for a fact that this motherboard does not support the AGP 8x interface, and on the contrary, the FX5200 is a AGP 8x card and I am pretty sure it is not backwards compatible with AGP 4x which in fact is supported by your motherboard. If… Read More
Do not worry, buy another computer, when it becomes old. You only will be able to know that if you replace the motherboard for a new one. That's risky.
It depends on what kind of damage the motherboard has lived through. A new motherboard is not that expensive, so you should buy a new one if you don't know what you are doing. And are you sure that it's the motherboard and not a virus on your harddisk?
Probably a hardware conflict. If you know how to use the System Manager you should be able to resolve the conflict, otherwise get someone who knows how to do it.
Dell 4600 and you want to know if you can use a pci express graphics card in a pci slot you have one open white slot and one open green one and you were wondering which type agp pci pci-express?
PCI-e card cannot be used on the 4600 motherboard.
I dont know!! Sorry!
Every component of a computer system has an interface to connect to the Motherboard. All you need to do is ensure that the parameters of the interface on the component matches the parameters of the interface on the motherboard. Each component has a different set of parameters, whether it be a hard drive, RAM, processor, video card or even something as simple as a mouse.
If you just want to know what videocard you got in your computer, press start > run (just the search box in win7) and type "dxdiag" (without quotes) and press enter. click the video tab and it will tell you the name of your video adapter. another way: if it is onboard video, the specs of the motherboard will tell you. or if its a card, the card will tell you.
The quick answere is no. You need to know the minimum sytem requirements of the video card so you can compare them to your PC's system features, and the type of monitor you are going to use. Also make sure the power supply inside your PC has enough power and the right conections to hook up and drive the card. If all this is good be aware that you will need at least a 17"… Read More
1 Get the exact model number of your sound card. This is important as a slight change in the model number can mean a great difference in the driver requirement. 2 Go to the sound card manufacturer's website. The native driver is usually your best choice if one is available for your operating system. The sound card maker will usually know how to make the sound card work for the operating system rather than the… Read More
You need to know what slots you have on the motherboard, then you know what cards you can get. If you have no clue what your doing, you could send me the model number of the PC or the motherboard, and ill tell you what cards you can get. If you click on my user name you can leave me a message, but I can only respond if you sign up. You need to look… Read More
