I've been searching for any information on this for a while, but I'm at a loss...
My laptop (generic) had a nVidia card and some type of onboard sound, but I cannot specifically identify either one. Windows isn't recognizing them, so I have no sound and am using the canned basic VGA drivers - very laggy display dragging windows around and such. dxdiag is no help, but that is probably because of the lack of proper drivers problem.
Device Manager lists these items as:
Video Controller (VGA Compatible) - has the yellow question mark/exclamation point next to it
C-Media AC97 Audio Devoce - has the yellow exclamation point next to it
Windows Update gave me no driver upgrades for either.
Here's the info I got from CPU-Z:
Processor Specification - Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.80GHz
Processor Code Name - Northwood
Core Speed - 2800 MHz
FSB - 133.3 MHz
Bus Speed - 533.3 MHz
Motherboard Manufacturer - American Megatrends Inc.
Motherboard Model - N351s1
Graphic Interface Version - AGP version 2.0
Graphic Interface Transfer Rate - 4x
Type - DDR
Size - 1024 MBytes
Frequency - (greyed out)
I also ran a Bios Identifier from www.ami.com
that gave me this info:
Manufacturer: American Megatrends Inc.
Product Name: N351s1
Serial Number: 00000000
The AMI website was not very helpful at all...no clear way to me to look up an item by its product number. The only path I found to follow there was to upgrade my Bios. I am now awaiting contact from eSupport (directed there from the AMI website) to get the files to flash my Bios...not really placing any faith in this being a solution. I imagine they will want an arm and a leg for any help.
I googled the product number to see if I could get specifications on my board thinking I could just download drivers independantly, but I didn't get any good hits (at least not in a language I could understand).
When I tried to install the latest drivers from nVidia's website, I got a message saying that I have no hardware the drivers are needed for.
I have provided all of the information that I can think of and have exhausted all of my informational resources thus far. If anyone has any ideas for any other ways I can identify these items and/or get drivers for them, I'd be very appreciative.
Thanks a bunch!
