Have gone into device Manager which tells me that the drivers for MAC are missing I have no disk with this software on and cannot find any on the net.
It tells me that I have no Audio Device installed, As far as I know there is no seperate sound card in my Laptop, it's one of those "all in" things.
Have been to the Toshiba site with no joy.
Any help would be V. much appreciated.

i installed Creative Sound Blaster PCI128
now i see in the device manager other devices --> Multimedia audio controller

i downloaded the drivers to win2K from creative site
but the installer is start then crash with a blank messege

i check in the installer and there is no *.inf file for manual install

What is the solution for this ?
is there a generic driver that can work ?

A:Multimedia audio controller Drivers

Somehow I have a feeling that based on the age of that card and that the last driver update that it received was almost 10 years ago (with the card coming out it 1998), I think it is safe to say that you aren't going to have much luck finding anything. In fact that card despite its name isn't even a Sound Blaster but a renamed Ensoniq (from back when Creative bought them out),

Sound Blaster - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The card may still work on a supported operating system, but I have a feeling that most onboard sound from the last few years will have more features and sound better than it does.

I formatted my computer, which has an Asus motherboard, the P5S - SE, and i installed Windows 7 32.
I have managed to install all the drivers except the Multimedia Audio Controller drivers.
I searched the official site of Asus but it does not give any Win7 drivers. I tried the ones for Vista but they did not work.
I tried some other suggestions from sites, but nothing.
I installed a program which can find and fix such issues but they request money. Even if i pay the money, which is a considerable amount, how can i be sure it will work?
Can anyone help me? Thanks
George S.

A:ASUS P5S - MX SE Multimedia Audio Controller drivers

If the ASUS is in a Lenovo PC, you need to be looking at Lenovo, first, for drivers. In most cases (all that I've seen) the Vista drivers work in Windows 7. There are several versions of the P5S-SE, the exact motherboard model is needed, if the Lenovo drivers do not work.

What audio device do you have? e.g. Sigmatel/IDT? RealTek?, etc.

The pay sites should be avoided. Many times they will list updates that do not exist or want to sell you an incompatible driver.

Thank you,

A:get bsod installing multimedia audio controller drivers

You should only download your drivers from the Dell Drives site for your model. The Realtek driver is not the Audio driver for your model #computer.
Go to the Device Manager, any devices with yellow flags need to have drivers installed.
Go to the Dell site and type in your Service Tag# or find your make and model# or use this link: Support for OptiPlex GX520 | Dell US Download the Chipset driver and install this first. Then download and install the Audio driver for your model# and any other drivers you need from the Device Manager.

I recently had to replace my motherboard and after doing so, I now have the following problems that I can't figure out how to fix. I'm hoping someone can give me some advice on what to try next:

1. The front speaker ports on my computer no longer are working. I've checked the connection on the motherboard to ensure I have it connected properly. When looking at the pins I see only one way it could be plugged in so I don't think I have it backwards or anything like that. However, when I plug speakers into that audio port, nothing comes out. On my old motherboard, when I plugged them in, the audio automatically switched channels but it doesn't do that now. I've swapped speakers with known good ones and tried a headset as well. Not sure it helps but audio ports on the back of the computer seem to work fine.

2. While digging into the audio issue, I noticed that Device Manager doesn't have drivers for SM Bus Controller. Would that be causing the audio issue? Regardless, I can't seem to find drivers for this. I have the setup CD that came with the motherboard. I don't see any specific options to install this driver when I run that. I've had Device Manager try to find the drivers off that CD and it doesn't find any. I've also tried searching my Win7 OS CD and same issue. Any advice on how to get these drivers?

A:SM Bus Controller Drivers needed and audio issue

Hi and welcome,

Install the chipset drivers for your motherboard to get the SM Bis controller drivers.

What case do you have? Some older cases may not be compatible with all audio connections.

I just reinstalled a clean Windows XP copy in my desktop computer which is of Dell Dimension 4550 model. I had reformatted the entire disk, deleted everything and reinstalled a clean copy of Windows XP Home with service pack 2 into my desktop.

Most of the drivers were missing after the reinstall.I managed to get suitable drivers for my network adapters and now i can successfully login to the internet.

In my device manager window, i still have two devices which have a big yellow question mark next to them. They are "Multimedia Audio Controller" and "Universal Serial Bus (USB) Controller" devices. I do not know where i can get the suitable drivers for these devices.

I have all CD's that came bundled with this computer. Among them are Dell Dimension Resource CD for Reinstalling Device Drivers and Using Diagnostics, Utilities and Online Documentation.

I need help in finding the right drivers for my two devices. Currently i cannot hear any audio from the speakers of my
computer. I need to install appropriate drivers to make my speakers and microphone function.

Any help would be much appreciated.

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?

First of all here are my specs:

Computer is an E-Machines T2642.
Motherboard: IM845GV
OS: Windows XP Home Edition (service pack 1)

Now my problem. About 4 days ago my sound stopped working on my computer. I checked the device manager and found multimedia audio controller listed as an other device with a question mark next to it. The properties lists the device as not having any drivers installed. I have tryed installing and rolling backthe drivers to no effect.

Another problem that I seem to have is my network connections shows a local area connection as having a network cable unpluged, with the device name being Realtek RTL8139/810X Family PCI Fast Ethernet NIC. I have tryed unintalling the realtek device and adding it again, but when I do it seems to generate the unknown multimedia audio controller which I suspect is the source of my problem.

So any advice on what exactly I need to do to fix this and get the sound back? At this point I suspect that the "sound card" on my motherboard may be fried. Help would be appricaited.

Hi, hope I can get some help. When I look in my device manager it says that I dont have any drivers installed for my multimedia controller or my multimedia video controller, I dont know how long this has been for. The thing is I dont know how to go about getting any drivers because I am not too sure about my system. I look about on the net trying to find drivers but I'm not sure which to get and I'm a bit chicken to make a decision. The reason I want these anyway is because occassionally my computer freezes while playing video and although this might not be the cause, I thought that I might as well try to get the problem sorted. If you want me to post any more system specifications I can because I have aida32 and sissoftware sandra, the stuff below is from belarc. Thanks in advance for any help you can give.

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.

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. Can anyone advise me on how to obtain the driver without having to purchase another sound card?

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.

Long story short, I had to do a complete reinstall of Windows XP and install the drivers manually.

I am down to one driver known as "Multimedia Audio Controller". I downloaded and installed the driver but got a message saying it did not have the Windows Logo but I proceeded anyway. This led to the blue screen of death so I started all over again.

The info I have on it is "PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_24C5...". I have run Everest HE and it lists as Intel 82801DBM ICH4-M - AC'97 Audio Controller [A-1]. The chipset is Intel Montara-G i852GM/i852GME, etc.

I can only run in Safe Mode so I am unable to start the windows audio in services or connect to the internet. Also, when I try to update the BIOS utility, I receive the following message: DEBUG - Create File () returns 2.

When I try to load in any mode other than Safe, the computer freezes on the Windows startup logo or on mup.sys.

My computer is an IBM Thinkpad R51 - 2888 - CTO.

There aren't any generic drivers, if you really don't know what you have you could try installing drivers until one of them works. Start with Realtek (www.realtek.com.tw), they make most of the onboard sound chips. Failing that, you could try VIA (www.viaarena.com) or SoundMAX.

Maybe you need to install proper driver for you audio card.

Does this computer new? If it's usually the shop will give you CD containing drivers for the sound card. Whether it's integrated or not, there should be at least CD included, otherwise you must download from the website directly.

Do you do something yesterday that made your sound driver disappear?

We must know your system specs clearly before giving correct driver. Try to get know the basic specification and it'll help.

That sure was a lot of information, for just inquiring about your sound problems!

By what I can see, and by the way your saying it, I would feel it safe to say that this computer of yours probably doesn't have any kind of sound solution at all. May I ask what the computer should have as far as a sound card? Are there any common 2.5mm head phone jack styled plug in's anywhere in the back? Are there any "pink" and "green" colored 2.5mm jacks on the motherboard itself? If you do have those jacks, especially coming off the motherboard, I would guess you might have that sound device "deactivated" or possibly "uninstalled"! If it just comes down to the fact that you indeed don't have any sort of sound card at all, I would suggest opening up you computer case, remove the side panel, without touching anything inside I would see if you have yourself an available PCI slot! If you do, than I would suggest that you purchase yourself a decent sound card.

The following are some possible options, seeing that the computer dates back to 2008, I'm not recommending anything "cutting edge"! Just enough sound card to get you by!

I had to change the hard drive in a Sony PCV-RX-570 Win XP Home. The drivers for the multimedia Audio Controller will not load from the driver cd. I have gone to Sony but I am unable to find a Multimedia Audio Controller driver.I have no sound and there is a yellow mark in device manager by other devices. I have tried to down load the drivers. I am told no drivers can be found.Any help with this problem?

The driver Sony supplies for that model is here:http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-downl...134&os_id=7however if the driver from the CD won't install, a different sound card may have been installed in the system.Does the speaker connection be in a block aligned vertically along the rear right-hand side with keyboard/mouse/modem/network connections, or lower down the case in the horizontal set of cut-outs where peripheral cards can be fitted?

Hi, I think I have accidentally deleted my Multimedia Audio Controller by mustake, as I now suddenly have no sound coming from my speakers. Now everytime I start up my computer I get the "Found New Hardware" message and the Found new Hardware wizard screen comes up and it asks me to install the software for my Multimedia Audio Controller. Thing is, I cant find the original disks so is there anywhere I can download the relevant stuff so I can have my sound back? Any help is greatly appreciated. My computers details are as follows:

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?

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

well, my computer hasn't been playing audio for some reason, so I decided to go to the CP and see what was up. When I found out there was no audio device, I checked around and the went into my device manager. apparently, my multimedia audio controller isn't working, as it has a yellow exclamation point. I tried reinstalling it, but evidently, the necessary software couldn't be found. So, what should I do? redownload it? or try messing with the actual physical components?
I have a Dell Dimension 3000 by the way...

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.


A:(?!) Multimedia Audio Controller

you need to completely uninstall the audigy drivers and reinstall the old drivers.yellow exclamation means drivers are'nt working

After reformatting my HD, can't find the driver for my sound card. (Using Win XP) There is a yellow question mark in Device manager beside Multimedia Audio Controller.

After a bit of searching found the Vendor ID is 10DE (Nvidia) and Product ID is 026B. So it turns out the deivce is:MCP51 AC'97 Audio Controller0x10DE
Only trouble is I cannot find the driver on the nvidia website. When I try to find it elsewhere I am asked to install a Device Detective-type program which I don't want to do.

Anyway someone can help me out with this. Thanks.

A:Multimedia Audio Controller

if onboard sound Ac97 you need to go to the motherboard manufacturer site to get the sound drivers and controller not nvidia site
