  1. I reformatted my com and I lost my sound. There is a big question mark on the multimedia audio controller.

    Can anyone help? Do I need to download any driver?
    Thanks in advance.

    i know the feeling-isnt it frustrating!!!

    i presume you are on xp so have you also reinstalled the motherboard drivers?

    If not, you will need to go to the mobo makers website and download the latest chipset for your particular mobo

    if you have already got that

    start>control panel>click on "add hardware" and see if the drivers are found or scroll down to where the yellow exclamation marks are in device manager and update driver

    if not, use the following link for a program that is excellent for giving your full system specs and post back with the motherboard details that are found under "mainboard"
