Drivers for my old IBM Netvista X40 6643

Hi
I was trying to get a old computer to works again to play old retrogames.

It is a old Netvista X40 6643 and the only problem I have is the soundcard and the graphics card.

It can't find the sound card and the graphics card is the default VGA.

I can't find any drivers anyware and is not so easy when I do not even know what graphics card or sound card it have.
The only info I got is it "Integrated high-performance graphics controller" and the sound card is "Integrated, 16-bit Sound Blaster Pro compatible audio controller"

(I did try with Sound Blaster Pro 16 but it did not work :) )

The original keyboard is likely an IBM preferred pro keyboard... similar to the Lenovo ones, just with IBM logos. That marble mouse is perfect!
