Moving drivers from one PC to another

Hi, I have a PC with a onboard stac9750t sound chip. I am unable to find drivers that work with this (code 10, device will not start). I have tried all the ones on driverguide.com and spent hours searching google to no avail. There is no model number on the Mobo so i cant even google that.

I know someone with the same mobo as me but they have lost there driver disc. My question is, is there a way to transfer the drivers from one PC to the other?


Cheers in advance

Mike

Hi Mike

You can download and run CPU-Z this will or should give you the make and model of your mainboard which is a start

As for transfering drivers not sure how this would work but there used to be a utilty to back up and restore drivers i just cant remember what it was called as it was sometime ago i used it but ill see if i can find out what it was called and let you know

Not sure it will do what your asking though so dedicated device drivers by way of mobo model would be the best bet

Im assuming as you say youve done a search on google that youve exhausted this line of searching, did you view searches for the sigma sound chips Here and Here

If you know the motherboard then you should be able to get the drivers from the makers site. 99.9% of boards should have a site and often the board says what it is on boot up.

The software to transfer drivers is driver magic

Windows XP should have a driver .... according to this (the chip is known as the C-Major):-

I assume you are trying an earlier OS? If so, you will probably need the original motherboard drivers as suggested before. The next step would be to identify the motherboard.

You could try connecting other pc via LAN and tell pc to look on it for drivers when installing the device...
