No Sound... Multimedia Audio Controller Issue

I have an Asus P4S800-MX Motherboard which doesnt play any sound since I upgraded it to Windows XP Media Edition 2002. The computer is an Intel Celeron with a 2.67GHz processor.    I have my speakers plugged it but when I try to open a sound via e.g. iTunes it says 'There is a problem with you Audio/Video Configuration'    On my control panel I went to System > Hardware > Device Manager and next to my Multimedia/Audio Controller a yellow '?' has appeared.
                               Any Help Most Appreciated!

Best place to look is the Compaq website. If you cannot find it there, you could try using a driver finder program to locate the right driver for your sound card. Those programs will identify the hardware by device id and use that together with the Windows info to get a matching driver.

Ok, instead of having all the hassle, my best advise for you is this, have your hard drive reformat, install it first with windows xp SP1 then upgrade it to windows xp SP2, in this way all the drivers missing and not supported will be rsetored, windows xp supported almost all drivers

Multimedia audio controller


Hi,

The problem here is that you need to install an audio driver for your system. However, there is not one available for Windows XP. You can try using a driver for Windows 98, but there is no promise that this will work for you. If that is the case, your solution is to disable the onboard audio, and install a PCI audio card that is compatable with your Windows XP and your motherboard.

Here's the link to the available audio drivers for your computer: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?product=93556&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&lang=en&cc=us&submit=Go%20»

Sorry I couldn't be of better assistance with this issue.

Sincerely,
James O'Brien

    hi,
    your audio controller driver is not correct one.
    please check the device name from the device manager and click on the following link to download the correct driver
    Asus-P5GZ-MX-Realtek-HD-Audio-Driver-6-0-1-5350

    Asus-P5KPL-Reatek-HD-Audio-Driver-5-10-0-5477

    if these are not the driver you want, let me know
