I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

After computer crashed, I ran WinXP reinstall CD. Of course, I lost everything that was previously loaded. I'm going again but have no sound. In Device Manager under Other Devices, Ethernet Controller & Multimedia Audio Controller are yellow question marks. I have tried the Resource CD, Dell Support/Downloads, everything I can think of and nothing is working. I am connected to the internet through the USB because the tech says I need a new ethernet card and have to connect right now through the USB. I'm lost at this point. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

Just formated and reinstalled Windows XP PRO and insatalled my motherboard software. I also performed ALL updates and Service Packs from Microsoft website. I installed all the drivers including my sound card software/drivers. All is running good. The sound works and I am able to access the internet. The issue is that the Device Manager is showing that the Multimedia Audio Controller and Ethernet Controller is not confired correctly (Has yellow exclaimation mark next to it). I've attempted to correct this by reinstalling drivers, but windows cant find them on any CD I put in such as the Win XP cd and the Ethernet installation disk. What is the problem and how can I fix it?

A:Device Manager showing Multimedia Audio Controller and Ethernet Cont. not installed

When you look in the device manager double click the to devices and check the device status and see why the exclamation is there. If it says driver is not installed or installed incorrectly then try to reinstall the drivers just insert your motherboard disk and click the update driver button. Odds are if you have a sound card installed and on board sound you'll have to disable onboard sound in bios. Also the same if your using a ethernet card and have onboard ethernet connector.

just upgraded my Dell Inspiron 9300 laptop from windows xp to windows 7 Home Premium. The multimedia Audio Controller and Network Controller are missing and I can't connect to the internet. How can I download these drivers to a flash drive and then install on my laptop

A:missing multimedia audio controller and network controller

Have done some looking around. From what I have found in many forums is that Vista drivers should work with Windows 7.

Post at Dell forums says the Sigma Tel Stac 975X AC97 audio driver listed for the Insperion 9300 at Dell Support will work for Vista and Windows 7. The file is a zip, so downloasd and save the file to the flashdrive. Then load it on your laptop, unzip and run it.


None of the Netwrok dirvers at Dell Support are for Vista.

For the network controller I would suggest going to the Dell Support and find out what the original configeration was for your system. Go to this page, select Original Configeration tab and enter the Service Number for your computer. It will e on a tag on the bottom.


Once you get your network divices names, go to the device manufacturer's site and check for Vista/Window 7 drivers.

This is a problem that just recently popped up out of no where. One day upon startup two new pieces of hardware were found on my computer. I get prompted to install the drivers for a Raid Controller and a Multimedia Audio Controller.

Each day I cancel them and my computer runs just the same as it always does. It my Device Manager these two items show up in the "? Other devices" tab alongside a SM Bus Controller (which never prompts me to install so it doesn't really bother me).

Just wondering what these devices are, where they came from, and what I should do to solve the problem.


A:RAID Controller and Multimedia Audio Controller

Did you do a bios flash or reset cmos by chance?

They are probably onboard devices you can disable them in the bios. You need to check your manual; each bios is a little different as to where the items in question are located.

One more question; do you have an add-on sound card and does your systems sound work ok?

go into control panel and click "add hardware"

If not, go to the motherboard website and look for the chipset there

I was checking around my Device Manager, and saw that the Multimedia Audio Controller was not installed. I have an Asus a8n-sli deluxe, so I checked their website and installed the latest realtek driver.

Now I have the realtek audio under sound devices, but the audio controller is still not installed.

How do I instal it and do I even need it?

A:Multimedia Audio Controller

Hi mrmojo

Do you mean to say that there is a device listed in the Device Manager sound category, and it's listed as "Multimedia Audio Controller"? . . . and does it have either a yellow exclamation point (!) or a red X next to it?

If you installed the RealTek drivers for your sound devices, and you see a sound device still listed with an exclamation point or red X, it's possible that
1) the listing is wrong - it's a leftover from not having the right driver installed (and you can right-click it & select "UnInstall" in Device Manager).
2) you have two sound devices - onboard and an add-on PCI card (Disable the one you're not using in Device Manager) [or a joystick, or other external multimedia device]
3) the driver isn't the right one, or the installation of the driver didn't go well.

My first guess would be #1.

Best of luck

I cannot get my sound to work for anything, This all happened when i installed windows 7 then sound did not work so i switched back, sound continued to not work. so i have a sound card (audigy 2 zs) that i have installed the drivers for and i disabled the onboard sound card with the bios and that did not work, so i have pretty much given up on the sound card and i would just like the onboard to work, i re enabled the onboard sound card from the bios and disabled my old sound card, sound still does not work, i have tried several drivers and chipsets that were suggested to me in another thread i made on the 15th, The previous thread is here, http://forums.techguy.org/windows-vista-7/860290-windows-7-no-audio-devices.html and nothing that was suggested works. Some additional information is that my microphone works completely fine when i had my sound card enabled but when i disable the sound card it no longer works and i get the below image in device manager.

I noticed that my system had both: a built in integrated audio adapter AND also a SoundBlaster Live24 PCI card installed.


I had verified SB Live24 adapter card drivers were installed correctly (if needed, un-install / re-install).

I verified that in the (bios) setup (F2), the "integrated audio" was "off" (disabled), and found it was "on" (enabled) - I disabled it.

then after booting -no more yellow question marks. I have sound now.

I have recently formated my friends computer and Installed a bootleg copy of Windows XP Pro since he lost all his software / manuals that came with the computer in accident. I have not been able to find much about getting this driver for the Multimedia Audio Controller. I am wondering if anyone around here could help me find the drivers I need.

Here is the computer Specs

System Model:

VIA Technologies, Inc. P4M266-8235
Enclosure Type: Desktop


MPU-401 Compatible MIDI Device
Standard Game Port

Operating System:

Windows XP Professional Service Pack 2 (build 2600)


1.70 gigahertz Intel Pentium 4
8 kilobyte primary memory cache
256 kilobyte secondary memory cache

Thank you for your time and your help

A:?! Multimedia Audio Controller ?!

First thing first, get the bootleg version of Windows off there. You can get a copy of XP Home from NewEgg for like $89 OEM. If you wish to stick with Pro, you can also get a valid version for about $100 OEM then simply change the product key (google) to activate and be legal for the Genuine Advantage tool.

From there, you'll simply need to install (in this order)
1) The chipset drivers for your motheboard.
2) The audio drivers for your motherboard.

If you don't know the make/model of the motherboard, you can (web search/download) either free tool: CPU-Z or Everest.

After years of running smoothly, Windows Media Player is suddenly refusing to play some music files, and marks them with a red x. That refers me to the Microsoft page Windows Media Player Error Message Help. After reading that, my symptoms seem most likely to be a problem with either a codec or the Creative SB Audigy 4 sound card. Personally I suspect a codec problem, but I don't know how to confirm this.

ALSO: When I go into the Device Manager, I see a yellow question mark next to Other Devices/Multimedia Audio Controller. There is no information in Properties about the manufacturer.

Hi everyone! It's me again, begging for your help...I know this isn't about viruses and all, like most problems on this site. But this is the only site I trust becuase it's helped me so many times before.Anyway, to the point. I was cleaning out some of the useless old games to free up some space on my computer. But I guess I accidentally uninstalled something called the Multimedia Audio COntroller. Now, even when my speakers are on, I can't hear a thing. Not the bells from windows pop-ups, not my music. Now when I try to use many programs, they wont open and pop-up mith messages like "GTA SA cannot find audio card installed" or "iTunes has detected a problem with your audio configuration. Audio/Video playback may not operate properly."When I first opened my computer, it said that they detected the "New Hardware." But when I install it, it says it can't find the proper programs/software to install it. BUT MY SPEAKERS DIDN'T COME WITH SOFTWARE! I googled my speakers (Kensiko KS-200) and didn't come up with anything but e-bay. My speakers are old, and Kensiko doesn't even have an official website. I don't know where to start. Can I just download this Multimedia Audio COntroller thing?Moderator Edit: Moved topic to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

After I accidentally bumped the computer, the screen turned blue and the computer restarted. After it restarted, nothing seems wrong, but the sounds. I went to Device Manager and See that there's an unknown driver and it's called MultiMedia Audio Controller. I'm guessing this is the sound driver that My Computer or Windows doesnt recognize, because i tried installing it.

To find out what this driver is, which is apparently my sound card, i used aida32 and found out it is sis pci 7012 sound driver. i've downloaded the driver installation pack and tried to install the driver. unfortunately, when i start the installation it comes up with "file not found ( )"..

what is missing and what should i do?

A:Multimedia Audio Controller

If this worked before the bump I'd be looking at reseating the sound card and also reseating all of your other slotted cards. I'd also check the seating of your RAM modules too. If the sound card is not seated correctly driver installation will continue to give you errors.

Hi everyone. I'm new and need help. I recently had my PC hard drive replaced and have nearly everything rebuilt and reconfigured, except for the sound card. Device Manager shows a big yellow question mark by "Other Devices". When I expand it, it shows "Multimedia Audio Controller". It says the drivers are not installed and I am unable to locate one. I purchased this PC a few years ago and still have original box with CDs. Unfortunately, I think they forgot to give me the driver to my audio and I recently found out the company that built my PC is no longer in business. Under "Resouces" in Device Manage, it says: "Input/Output Range D800 - D83F". Other than that, it's pretty much a dead end for me.

I've just started using out "Old" PC again (Fujitsu Siemens Scenic) and I originally plugged in a set of old speakers (MS-695) and everything was fine, then while going through Add/Remove Progs. I had to reboot.

When I rebooted there was no sound at all and the problem with the Audio Multimedia Controller popped up. It comes up in a window that says there is new Hardware to be installed. It asks me to look for a driver and searches for a while and then finds nothing. I'm pretty sure we don't have the disc for the pair of speakers (If it even came with one anyway, which i'm not too sure about)

Whenever I load Itunes or WMP it says it has a problem with the Speakers and just won't play anything.

When looking on dxdiag it appears not to find a Sound Card. I know I have one!!

How can I fix this problem?

Where can i find multimedia audio controller download? I accidenly deleted it by mistake. Now i'm paying the price without any sound. Where could i download it?

A:multimedia audio controller

You have to figure out what audio card you have first. If it's an onboard sound device, just go to the motherboard manufacturer's website, find the support section, input your model number and download the drivers.

if it's an add-in card, they should be on your CD.

If you don't know either, run windows update and it should figure out it's not working right and suggest the right driver.

If you don't know the motherboard and windows update didn't help, download and run the 'everest home' program available Here

Run and find it under 'computer' on the left hand pane, and 'motherboard' in the right.

Did you had a chance to open the Control Panel and double click on the multimedia icon or Sounds, speech and audio devices ( in XP ) and see if you have the checked the "place volume in taskbar" checkbox?

You're missing either the chipset drivers and/or the audio drivers for the laptop. Go to the manufacturer's site support section and download the drivers for your laptop.

Yesterday I was going through "add/remove programs" in control panel and deleting some programs that I never or rarely use. I accidentally deleted a program (I think it was a sound driver) and now my computer won't play music or make any sound. Every time I turn it on it says it has found new hardware, "multimedia audio controller" and it wants to install it but it can't find the necessary software on my computer for this to work.

I tried using system restore to rectify this problem but unfortunately I'd deleted so many miscellaneous programs that I couldn't go back far enough to when I'd deleted the audio controller.

Any help would be much appreciated as I'm getting really wound up and panicky about this whole thing. If prompted I can provide more information but I wasn't sure what things anyone helping me would need to know.
