Download and run SIW.

under Hardware click on PCI and identify the 'audio device'.

If it shows up in Device Manager, you can check the Device ID(1) on

This will tell you the manufacturer/model/number etc, and links to contact for the driver (or to help you google) Haven't tested with external sound-cards though.. question seems resolved, posted anyway, for posterity.

(1) Device Manager -> Item (right-click) "Properties" -> "Details" tab -> select "Hardware IDs"
