What exactly is the make and model of the machine?

Is it a Gateway laptop?

  woowoowoo 18:27 16 Sep 09

its a cube machine, a few years old now, not sure what model - I'll see if I can find the original invoice

  woowoowoo 18:33 16 Sep 09

No luck with the paperwork, can I find the info I need on the PC itself?

Run SIW
expand "Devices"
Expand "Sound Audio and game controllers "

Tell us what is in there.

OK - I have
legacy video capture devices
Video Codecs
Audio Codecs
Multimedia Audio Controller(which I have expanded above)
Legacy Audio Drivers

Struggling to figure out what type of sound card you have, looking for something like C-Media, AC97, or Creative.

I think it may be creative - kinda rings a bell - how do I find out though?
