    go to and enter the service tag or the express service code of your system. Once you entered it, you would be given a new window and from the window, choose what is you operating system and download the correct driver for your audio card

There are a lot of drivers on the net that you could download for the sound card to work but first we need to know what kind of sound card that is installed on your motherboard. You could check your manual of the motherboard and try to find out what sound card is installed.

One of the most common problems in PCs( Personal Computer) is the absence of sound, there are many people that ignore why their computer doesn't has sound at all.
The first thing you should know is that the reproduction of sound is possible thanks to a Hardware( Electronic Circuit) made with the purpose of processing sound.
Inside a pc you can find one or both of the two kinds of sound devices as follows:
- Integrated in the chipset( inside one chip known as South Bridge) soldered to the motherboard.
- Sound card ( a card that is plugged in one of motherboard slots, usually PCI ).
Which one is better ?
On a sound card you will find the best possible quality, because it is made only for that purpose, while the South Bridge has to deal with many other tasks like controlling hard drives, communication ports, etc, as you can see it is too much for a relatively small single chip).
To find out if your pc have already installed a sound device, look for small jacks where the plug of your headphones will fit, there are usually three of this jacks (called miniplug connectors).
- Audio out( Here you will plug your speakers),"usually green".
- Mic ( For your microphone),"usually pink"
- Aux in ( you can use this to connect a walkman, for example), "usually blue".

If you already have the sound device, the next thing you will need is a software called Sound( or Audio) Drivers, made by the manufacturer of the device, in order to serve as translator between the device and the operating system, so you will find specific drivers for windows 98(just for 98), win xp, win vista, etc.

Usually this drivers will come in one of the CDs you get when you buy the pc and you can download updated ones( fixed issues, more efficient, etc) on the manufacturer's website, so if you don't have the CD all you have to do is find out who made your device and what model it is.

I suggest you to SAVE this and other drivers, like the ones for
Graphics Adapters etc on CD if you are one of the persons tempted to format your hard drives, delete things from your system, download and install things without idea of what it is
or for simple precaution.

Hope this can be of any help.
Best regards.

What should i do to get my sound device and controller?

Hi riteshscorpi,

Since you have a multimedia audio controller or Sound Card installed to your motherboard, reboot your PC and enter the CMOS/BIOS setup and disable the Onboard Audio.
Save your new settings.
The PC should immediately detect your Sound Card and ask for driver.
Install the Sound Card driver completely and reboot your PC.
Finally, configure the Audio properties to your desired adjustments.

Hope this helps you a lot.

Thank you for using FixYa!

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.

Multimedia audio controller, sm bus controller not working

Check if the motherboard driver are installed. The sound and sm bus driver are in the CD installer of the motherboard. Load the motherboard installer to the CD drive and install. Did you remember during the time you buy your unit the CD installer are given. That CD is useful every time you have trouble your unit.It's better if you kept that CD installer.
