e series 140 aptiva from IBM.. I cant seem to find any drivers for this thing... anybody know where I can find this stuff???

The great thing about any PC is it's basically a box of components which are fitted to thousands of other PCs even though the badge is different. If your friend is able to get windows running (allbeit with wrong driver - you didn't say whether wrong sound driver or video driver?) he can download and run a program which will tell him exactly what hardware is inside the system box, including make, model of video and sound cards. The program interrogates the hardware directly -- bypassing the drivers altogether -- so if a driver is wrong or missing the program will still be able to identify the hardware. Download and install the free 'Everest Home Edition' from http://www.snapfiles.com/get/everest.html
I think it may even have links built into it for the websites you need to get drivers from, but otherwise once you know the make/model, you can go to the website manually.
