    This is the sound driver for your laptop that's specified on the Toshiba website. Try it and see if it works.

    check all the settings (click on the speaker icon on the taskbar) to make sure it is not muted.

    Wav, Volume up, mutes unchecked. physical volume knob on the side of the laptop up. Still nothing. What program would detect soundcard is onboard?

    Works now, cheers for your help and linking the drivers for me!

    I checked out that site for other drivers for modem, video controller and another driver and got them too...Not entirely sure if they're the right ones though...

    Well, Toshiba has posted them there since they're the drivers that will work most reliably with the hardware. So getting all of them and burning them to CD or something is a good idea IMO. :)

    Hello! My computer has no sound, all of a sudden. In Device Manager it shows the Multimedia Audio Controller with a yellow exclamation mark. I used CPU-Z to check my specs and the motherboard specifications are:

    Manufacturer: Dell Inc.
    Model: OM3918
    Chipset: Intel i915p/i915G Rev. B1
    Southbridge: Intel 82801FB (ICH6)
    LPCIO: SMSC

    I don't know what drivers I have to install, or what do I need to do... Please help me with this! :)

    Go to device manager and delete the one marked with the yellow sign. Shut down your computer and restart. Win xp should pick up the driver and re-intall it automatically if it was there before. Otherwise visit Dell support and search for the driver, or if you have the original CD that came with the PC, the drivers should be there.
    Good luck. Post back your findings

    Note to self...don't delete unwanted programs from your PC because you might delete something you need!

    I'm having the same problem everybody else is. I was trying to clean out programs I never use and now my sound is gone. I've got the yellow question mark next to 'Multimedia Audio Controller' and when I try to update it it's not found. Can anybody help...I promise to never delete anything again! Lesson learned! :)

    Does any of this help...? I read through all of the other posts and tried a few of the suggestions but still no luck...

    Thank you!

    Problem solved...I wanted to put my resolution here in case it may help somebody else.

    I went to 'live chat' with EMachines and the problem was fixed in 10 minutes. Wish I would've done that 4 hours ago...

    They had me go to Start> All Programs> System Recovery > Application and Driver Recovery.

    All of the items I deleted were there...I found the one that applied and reinstalled it.

    Now I have sound!! YAY!!

    Last week I had to have a new hard drive installed on my laptop. After Windows was installed I installed all the drivers. Everything works except for the sound with the multimedia audio controller still showing a yellow ?. I have went to the gateway website, downloaded the sound driver and fails every time I try to install.

    My computer data:

    I am not sure if you removed the previous drivers first.
    Goto device manager and delete the entry where the yellow mark is, restart the computer and when windows finds the new hardware, it will ask you for the drivers. That is when you should go to the folder where you have downlowded and installed the new drivers and select it. This should work if it is the correct driver.
    Good luck

    im having a real problem with the audio manager. i dont get sound anywhere but in the manager. for example i go to the audio I/O section and press the play button under the picture of the desktop setup and i get sound there but if i go to play one of my games or listen to music i get no sound what so ever. does any one know what i could do to fix said problem.

    If you have changed your sound card it is sometimes necessary to reset the games so that they use the new card - most games have a settings box where you can do this.

    multimedia audio controller

    hi u seem like the expert here so i thought i would contact you impaticular. i have read everyones problems and tried some of the solutions myself, but with no result. when i try to install the multimedia audio controller this is what comes up "insert disc: VIA/S3G" then "installation disc #1 is needed" and finally " the file vtmini.sys on VIA/S3g display driver" i hav'nt a clue what that mean but i dnt have the disc they want me to give. when i contacted my computer manufactuer they tols me it wasnt there problem and they could not help me.
    so what do i do now because i believe my computer restart problem is due to the devices.
    thank you.
    P.S i have the same problem with the Video controller (VGA compatible)

    Expert: ex = has been, spurt = drip under pressure.
    Can we have some system specs please?
    I think what is happening is that the driver install process is looking for files that are not on the path so needs a little help. Note the name of the file being asked for and then run start > search > type in the name of the file. When the system finds it, note the name of the folder and then use that in the driver install process.

    Then perhaps the files are in a cabinet or zip folder and must be extracted by the install routine.
    Check the install CD and check if there is a setup.exe file - if so, run it and see what happens.

    i do not have the installation CD, this pc was a replacement, it came with no CD's and when i recieved it.
    with the one it replaced there was no VIA/S3G disc. its a conundrum. :S

    You don't need a driver CD. Open the case and take a look at the motherboard. See if you can locate the make and model number of the motherboard. Make might be something like ASUS, ABIT, ECS, or Biostar. A model number might look like A7V8X or something... Once you give us this info, we can locate the proper driver
