I recently installed a new hard drive into my computer. My speakers now don't work and I have been told that this is because I have to reinstall the driver for my Soundblatser Soundcard.
My 1st problem is that I do not know exactly what spec of soundcard I have. Is there any hardware detection programme that can tell me that?
Secondly, when I do establish the spec of the soundcard, where can I obtain the driver? Will I be able to download it free of charge anywhere?
Thanks

The only really foolproof way to see what you have is open up the computer and look. Sometimes Windows Update will detect your hardware and automatically install a driver for it though.

Driver for soundblaster soundcard


The good news is that once you determine what driver you need, the driver itself will be free. I've never seen drivers that cost money.
