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.

What motherboard did you have previously?

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.

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 have installed some "soundmax" drivers and they restart my computer after they load, but then when i check the device manager it still shows Multimedia Audio Controller w/ a ?-mark.... and my computer still has no audio...

Besides the Multimedia Audio Controller, the only other yellow ?-mark is for a "PCI Modem", so i think i covered every other basis as far as reinstalling drivers.

any suggestions/solutions

THANKS in advanced!

A:Multimedia Audio Controller?

I had the same problem with an old Dell system of mine after reloading the OS after a hard drive crash. Dell has all the drivers for its hardware online at their website, just have to find the right one. For your box, I think this link will help:http://support.dell.com/support/topics/glo...lang=en&cs=For the modem, just do a search there for "8400 pci modem driver" and I expect you will find what you're looking for.

Hi all,
I recenty formatted my TIME laptop and now don't have any sound.
In Device Manager, it states that there isn't a Multimedia Audio Controller detected.
This is where the problem starts as I had the motherboard replaced a few years ago. It was replaced with a pattern MITAC board and no drivers were supplied after the repair.
I ran Everest on the laptop to see if I could get any details but none showed.
Is there a generic controller out there that will work?

Thanks for any replies.

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.

A:Multimedia Audio Controller Help?

Ca you tell us what kind of computer you have, what operating system, what kind of audio card do you have.
Is there a chance that your audio card lost connection from the motherboard?

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 install your sound drivers. What kind of motherboard/soundcard do you have ? Are there any Cd's came with your computer ? or a motherboard cd ? If not we ll need some info about your computer in order to help you find the suitable drivers. Brand and model number would help too. Also go get all available windows updates including driver updates ( do not get the video - vga ones since you might experience problems with those.)
