Windows will rarely find the correct device driver downloads for specific hardware. http://www.driverstorer.com/drivers is a good place to start. Since it seems you don't know what audio device you have, I would download and use Speccy, also found on driverstorer, to find the exact model number of your audio deivce, then proceed to find the correct device driver downloads.

> other device - multimedia audio controller

This means that Windows has not found/loaded the device-drivers for your sound-card.

> other device video controller(VGA compatible)

This means that Windows has not found/loaded the device-drivers for your video-card.

In both cases, access: http://WindowsUpdate.Microsoft.com
and do a "custom" search for updated device-drivers.
When the search completes, click the "Optional Hardware" updates, to see if Windows Update is offering device-drivers for your hardware.

Or, access the web-site for the manufacturer of your motherboard,
and do a search, based on the model-number of the motherboard,
and based on the Operating System (XP? Vista? 7?) that you have installed,
to see if that web-site is offering device-drivers for your environment.

go to device manager and click on display adapter then right click on ATI X1650 then run an update. It might be because the driver on your computer is not update with the driver that is not compatible with windows 7. Hope this would help. Thanks.

How to check if your system needs drivers


WINDOWS XP

Goto Start > Run > type "devmgmt.msc " without quotes and hit the enter key. You will get Device Manager opened. Now see if you see any yellow exclamation mark. If you see yellow icon that means the current drivers are corrupted or the drivers are not installed.

To fix the issue use windows update site and install all the hardware updates.

You can check it on the device manager:

To go to Device Manager
here's what you need to do:

  1. On the desktop right-click on My Computer and click Properties or open the Control Panel and double-click the System icon.
  2. In the System Properties window click the Hardware tab.
  3. In the Hardware tab click the Device Manager button.
or
  1. Click Start
  2. Click Settings
  3. Click Control Panel
  4. In the Control Panel double-click the Systems icon.
  5. In the System Properties window click the Hardware tab.
  6. In the Hardware tab click the Device Manager button and
NOTE: look for Sound devices or If you see other devices (In yellow "?")

and under that is the Audio Controller or Audio device
it only means that the driver for the sound card is not yet installed.

Device manager is showing PCI Deice missing


Hi you should try the motherboard website for drivers. Usually drivers that come with Windows XP are generic.
Try going in to Device manager, Uninstall the driver and reinstalling the driver that you downloaded from motherboard vendor site.
