1) You purchased it. You should know who built it. Microsoft did not build
it (at least very doubtful.) If you are like most people, it is a Dell, HP,
IBM, Packard Bell, Gateway, etc... One of the big computer manufacturers
(Original Equipment Manufacturer) and not a self-assembled or custom
computer made up of parts. What is the name brand? That is your OEM.
2) If it happens to be a custom computer - you likely have a receipt that
list out the parts *or* you can run something like Belarc Advisor on the
computer. This will give you the hardware manufacturer for each relevantr
component. In your case - you should download and install the latest
dial-up modem (communications device) driver and the latest sound card
(audio device) driver.
I cannot say for certain - but it looks like you have a Conexant modem.
(Download the Free advisor and let it run.)
