  1. Hi all

    Well this is another typical "No driver for multimedia controller"
    I formated at my computer and i now have no sound....
    It was working for awhile,and when it did the Speakers where plugged into
    the Mic spot and i got sound.....but if i plugged them into a regular speaker spot all i get is a ear shattering Buzzing sound... 1: is that normal???? cuz i dont think so...2: How and where do i get the drivers......iv tried lots of stuff, ...but nothing works.... im sitting here about to throw my comp out the window...

    plz hurry before its to late....:p

    Your plug-ins are incorrect. The ear shattering buzzing sound is feedback from something plugged into the wrong socket.

    As for the drivers, you can use the free Belarc Advisor, or Everest Home to produce a list of working components, then go to the manufacturer of the main chip, or the manufacturer of the motherboard, or the manufacturer of the sound card, or the manufacturer of the computer and download wht they have for your motherboard model, sound chip, or computer model.
    Remove or disable the old drivers, if any, then follow the driver installations exactly to install working drivers where they need to go.

    Wellcome to techspot bandit690 , I hope you enjoy your time with us here.

    *Did you or anybuddy opened that pc , to do something or anthing?

    *if you didnt , then the OS you installed , aparently attempted to
    install the drivers for your sound card , automaticly. There is also a
    possibility that the .inf files are not the ones compatible with your card.

    Please send us more info about what happened exatly.
    plus , if you can , send us names and models of your mobo
    and sound card so that we can track down a site that
    contains your drivers , or any other posible solution.


    Also , wenever you have time , please take a moment to visit
