No sound from PC, problem with multimedia audio controller


The yellow mark indicated the multimedia audio controller driver was not installed, therefore the audio won't work/no sounds.
You need to identify the make and model of the audio card and if you haven't the audio installation CD then you can download the driver from the manufacturer's WEB site.
Since the repairer fixed your computer, he should have installed the audio driver. I suggest you get the repairer to install the audio driver as it should have been part of the repair service.
Also if you see any other yellow marks against any devices in the DEVICE MANAGER then these will also need the drivers installed.

Audio


Hi, Confirm that there is an audio device installed in your PC > right click on My Computer, Properties, Hardware tab, Device Manager button, expand Sound, video and game controllers, It's got to be there, with no yellow or red marks. Also in Start, Control Panel, Sounds and Audio Devices, Audio tab, you should have something in Default device. If none likewise in Device Manager or a yellow or red mark, you have to re-install your drivers by right clicking on the mark and click Update drivers. If they're there with no marks, ensure that they are enabled. Perhaps further assistance maybe made available if you can post brand/model of your PC and/or motherboard. Good luck and kind regards.
