There is this annoying yellow exclamation mark under my device manager that indicates that my ''Multimedia Audio Controller'' is missing. I've downloaded the relevant drivers from the manufacturer's website as well as from other websites. However, whenever i install these drivers, i get all sorts of errors and problems. One of the 'popular' error messages i always get are ''there was a problem installing your sotfware, access i denied'', '' no compatible hardware is detected'' or '' ...can only install the software in the administrator mode...''. I've tried everything but nothing seems to be working. MY Motherboard model is: P21G V3.1. Your help will be very much appreciated.

Kristilyn, You will need to download and reinstall the sound drivers into the system or use the Dell Drivers disk that was shipped with your computer to install. You can download the driver from the link below. Dell Optiplex GX520 Audio Driver http://dell.to/17lTTIk

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.
It sounds like you have the wrong driver installed or there are more drivers that you need to install and update.
One way to ensure that you install the correct drivers is to go through the Device Manager and update your driver.
This is for a Windows XP system
To Update your drivers through Device Manager, pls do the following:
1. Attach your computer to the internet, make sure you can get on the internet by launching your browser, ie. Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari
2. Navigate to Start/Control Panel, System
3. Choose the Hardware Tab and click Device Manager
4. See if there are yellow exclamation marks or question marks listed
5. Select them and right click on each one (you have to do this one by one until you see no more yellow exclamation marks or question marks)
6. Choose Update Driver
7. Follow the prompts to complete (usually by clicking ok to all the prompts)
This is for a Windows Vista or Windows 7 system
1. Connect your computer to the internet and ensure that you have internet connection by launching your browser and surfing to your favorite website.
2. Navigate Start/Control Panel/System
3. On the top left hand corner, click Device Manager
4. Do the same from 5-7 under the Windows XP directions up above.
Again, remember that sometimes drivers are related to something else on the system. Therefore you may need to update one or more drivers. This is the only way to ensure that you get everything.
Let me know how it works out and please don't forget to rate me.
Make sure the the sound driver is installed. Go to the device manager by right clicking the "My computer" icon and then click properties. Click the Hardware tab and click Device Manager. If there's a yellow question mark or exclamation mark under other devices saying audio controller then it means say that the audio driver is not installed. Download the driver from the manufacturer's website.
The reason for these 2 big question marks is that Windows device drivers for the sound card & modem are not installed. If you don't have the drivers for these 2 cards, let me now the make & model, & I can find them for you.
after installing the operating system usually windows u must install the device drivers for ur system. each mainboard has a cd which u get while purchasing ur computer. if u dont have the cd try to download the drivers from the net.
near the cpu socket there is the model number and manufacturer of ur mainboard search for the drivers by the model number and name.
