    SO this earlier advice helped me. No downloads, No worrying about my Motherboard. First You Go To The Device Manager List And Right Click On Multimedia Audio Controller. Click On Update Driver And Then Click The Manually Choose A Program Go To The Audio Codecs .. I think I clicked or right clicked on it and it gave me choices. I chose Intel then Intel(r)AC97. Hope this helps someone else.

    go to the Asus support website and download and install the audio driver again. You can try and delete the Yellow exclamation marked device, reboot and see if the device is reinstalled successfully

    We're you updating anything when you lost the sound? What do you mean by "trying to click on install but it wont let me"... What kind of errors are you seeing, or does the computer freeze?

    computer and it asked for the multimedia audio controller drives again, , my

    Oh so you bought a M-Audio sound card that fits into a slot on the inside of your HP? You will have to turn off the on-board sound in the motherboard bios, in order to stop the installation of the multimedia audio controller message

    It takes a little computer knowledge to be able to get into the bios screen of a computer. You may have to press F1, F2 or F10 as the computer starts. Once you are in the bios, look for something like on-board PCI devices, audio controller, and disable it. Save the changes and reboot your system. Take your time...

    Hello everyone. first post.

    I've just downgraded from Vista to XP Pro, I have a Creative SB Audigy 2 ZS card (not notebook). It worked on Vista. I downloaded a beta driver from

    and device manager now shows creative sb audigy 2 zs under "sound, video, game controllers" but there's no sound coming from my speakers. I have the same hardware conflict (explanation mark) with "multimedia audio controller" as other people in this topic. How is the audio controller related to the sound output, and if I fix this problem, will I get sound again? My system is freshly formatted, the driver in the link is Jun 08, I have normal speakers... am I missing a driver or some software or something?

    do u have the driver for the sound card installed? if not install it, if it is installed u might go to creative and see if u can find a newer driver. the sound card is all that should need drivers for the sound to be heard.

    I downloaded the motherboard (P4P800-E Deluxe) one from the Asus website:

    V5.10.00.5440 2004/04/29 update
    Description ALC850 Avance AC'97 Driver
    ALC850 Avance AC'97 Driver for (98SE/ME/2000/XP/2003)

    And one from creative for Audigy 2 ZS:

    Creative Sound Blaster Audigy series Driver
    Release date: 17 Jul 08
    This download is a driver providing Microsoft® Windows Vista® and Windows® XP support for Creative Sound Blaster® Audigy® series audio devices.

    rebooted and still no sound

    Perhaps you could check the following?
    1 - Check the speakers are working by turning up the gain and holding the signal connection plug in your fingers - you should hear a hum from the speakers - if nothing they may be faulty so check them in another PC or suitable audio output.
    2 - How many sound cards do you have? If you have one on the motherboard and also a sound card all installed and running you need to disable one of them. Either take out the sound card or disable the motherboard sound card in the BIOS. If there is a resource conflict this should clear it.

    It turns out that my main soundcard-speaker port was scratched. I got a replacement and voila .... 2 brilliant speakers. Thanks for all the help guys.
