I know this question has been asked many times but I come for help with a unique problem, or so I think. I have searched looking for help with my Multimedia Audio Controller missing and here is a list of things I have done and what has come of it.
I have downloaded my most recent drivers and installed them. They seem to go in the my "missing audio controller" isn't ? anymore. So I restart and it crashes over and over again, with the exception of starting windows at the most recent best configuration.
I've tried uninstalling it and restarting, it finds the Multimedia Audio Controller and asks for some help finding the software driver.
I've used the old and new drivers and alas I find myself in the same situation.
I've also tried searching the net, contacting the sound card company, Microsoft, and even EVGA my mother board company. No one seems to have an answer, below are my relative specs.
Yamaha DS-XG Audio CODEC
NVIDIA 4 SLI Mother Board
(I would even be happy to have on board sound back!)
I do have the drivers given to me by the sound card company but none of the drivers work.
I will keep searching through this endless see of answers in hopes to find mine and looking back here, please feel free to ask any questions that you might find relevant.
Just a side note – I’ve downloaded EVEREST to make sure I had all my specs right for the sound card.
I am currently using Windows XP 64

was this card previously working?

if not, i am going to take a stab and say that this card is not x64 ready, as when i looked at the yamaha download page, it only gave a link for an xp driver, which most likely will not work in x64.

now for your onboard... take your card out, as many mobos disable onboard if an inserted card is detected... go into your bios and see if there is any information on your onboard there... and then boot windows and install the drivers for your onboard sound from the cd you got with it... that should fix things for you.
