I have 3 EPIA 50000 board that I am trying to get up an running with UBUNTU. but I am having issues with the display and audio. here is the lsconfig. How do I load specific drivers for these. so that I can get the display away from the generic and enable audio.

All the driver should install automatically including sound. If you can replace the graphics adapter, I would do that, as the support from the manufacturer is slim to nonexistent. to check if the drivers for the sound card are loaded, open a terminal and type:

lsmod | grep snd

Could you paste the results in your next post?

The install had to be performed on a different system due to BIOS CD rom lock out. I could not get into the bios to boot from cd and the network install did not work when I set it up. so I ran the install on a different system the moved the the drive over to this one. so I need to manually load drivers and edit config files. The sound drivers look like they are correct so I may have another issue there. But the video is trying to load the NV drivers for a Trident chipset.
