ere_in_cornwall,

no manuals? .. check 'device manager' in control panel. or use,
Start->Run->dxdiag
You should get what sound card and graphics card that is being used by the system.

One way is to check in your device manager.

Go to start>control panel> system>hardware tab> in the middle is a button called Device manager: Click it:

You should see a whole bunch of + signs, click on Display adapters for your graphics card. Sound, video, and Game controllers will be where your audio is located. Right click on it and one of the options is properties. Liz
