  1. Hi everyone,
    I upgradeed my operating system to Windows XP and now I don't have any sound. When I check Device Manager it shows a yellow question mark infront of multimedia adio controllers. When I check the properties, it says the device has no drivers. If you have faced same problems, please help.
    I have a Pentium III Asus CUSI-M motherboard with three PCI slots.

    Retta.

    Multimedia problem

    I already have a driver installed for my audio card. btw i have a C-media PCI CMI8768. But when I use Add Hardware it finds an unknown driver called Multimedia Audio Controller, but I can't find the driver for it anywhere :S
    I have sound, but not as good as it was, and this unknown driver is preventing me from being able to use Winamp :/

    Hello,

    I'm new and I have a similar problem but it was caused by getting a new monitor. Here's some pictures with some information that might help. Please Help. My computer was customized.
