I have a Toshiba Satellite A30 Laptop, Suddenly I have no sound!
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 have tried looking for the model/manafacturer of this MAC but to no avail, really don't know what I'm doing...

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.

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.

A:Help With Multimedia Audio Controller And Ethernet Controller Drive

And the make and model of your computer is......??

Read other 10 answers

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.

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!

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.

I read 2 similar threads and still have this problem. I have an Intel D845PESV MOBO with onboard audio. I bought a SB Live 24 about 8 months ago, installed it and it ran great until a week ago. I was in the SB settings and changed the speakers and lost all audio. Now I have the yellow exclamation point in Device Manager for my multimedia audio controller. I have tried reinstalling my MOBO audio drivers and the driver for the SB with no luck. Every time I reboot it wants to install but cannot find the drivers. I am also having trouble with my DVD drives, how can I determine if this is a hardware problem and not just a driver issue?

A:Multimedia Audio Controller

added info

i had a similar problem. my sound wasnt comming from my audigy zs. although it was working b4. This is what i did to get it to work.

1)update windows xp

2)uninstall the all audio drivers, to include the SB and Onboard audio. rebot pc. wen it say found new hdwre click cancel. u should install only the SB driver from cd, DONt let the pc look for it.

3)try ur speakers in ur mobo. do u get sound? well u shouldnt if u uninstalled the onboard audio. if so there could be a conflict with the sb card u installed. go into bios N make sure to disable the onboard audio- (AC'97 i think). now u should get NO sound from mobo.

4)go into device manager N find ur onboard audio card click properties N disable use of it. this should get rid of that multiaudio controller found crap. next find ur SB card N enable use of it.

5) in the end it was as simple as changing the sound fropm digital to analog. try that.

i think for some reason i was playing wit the audio device N changed the settings from analog to digital. it should be analog. also check N make sure ur speakers work.

good luck.

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.

Do you have on-board or a sound card? You need to know the sound card make and model and then go to their website and download the multimedia driver package. You might try running DxDiag in the start/run window (assuming your OS is XP). Although if the drivers are uninstalled I can't be sure Dxdiag will read hardware correctly. Click on the Sound tab and at the top left side it should tell you the hardware naem for your sound card.

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.

A:Multimedia Audio Controller

A yellow marking in Device Manager...indicates that the drivers for that device need to be reinstalled.

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?

A:Audio Multimedia Controller

restoring your pc to an earlier date than when the problem occurred should resolved this problem. for it seems like a driver got deleted.
peace and blessings to all.
