    Hi

    Can anybody help me ID sound drivers for a philips freeline LS 2100 old PC.
    I have completely hit a brick wall as there are no drivers seemingly available.
    The philips support site has absolutely nothing ?
    all driver programs ( have tried many ) no help?
    searching google no joy ?

    The motherboard states MS 7046 ver 1 but as an oem board the motherboard website cannot help they say contact the manufacturer ?

    Device manager just has a yellow exclaimation mark saying high definition audio ? Auto updating the driver says nothing available. CPU Z confirms a 915 chipset is on the Motherboard.

    It originally was XP I have installed W7 all other drivers are found ok. I guess windows 7 has maybe just put in high definition as it does not know what to install clearly this is wrong.
    looking at the motherboard I cannot see any chip that may be responsible for audio ?

    I am going to order a seperate pci sound card as I seem to have exhausted all avenues to get onboard sound working.
    But I dont like to be beaten !!
    Anyone with furher suggestions I would be grateful :confused:
    many thanks

    @logicwatch

    Are you using x86 or x64 Windows? Can you please try to manually install them by pointing to the INF using Device Manager?
