If your equation requires either a complex combination of variables to get the desired result OR you can't seem to get the result regardless of the variables....it ain't your variables, it's your constant.

most of the times if you need the driver your OS (or windows does) will only display the type of device

eg.

"multimedia controller" or something similar it wont tell you the brand and model as you need the driver for this, easiest way is to look at it as suggested above

Sound tab in dxdiag will do the job, no need extra software. But something like everest is nice to have, lots of information on your system.
