I have freshly installed windows xp on my computer. After installation I have found that the multimedia audio controller needs to be installed. I have no clue of the hardware and where to get the drivers. Can someone help me on how to approach this problem?

Hello,

- You can check with main board. Check the mother board manufacturer & their name.
For eg :  Intel 845 GVSR , Intel DG31 PR, Mercury or Gigabyte.

- Open the website of manufacturer, select your mother board model & download it.

Regards,

Click Start then Run and enter devmgmt.msc.  
Right click on the multimedia audio controller and select properties.
Then select the "Details" tab
Use Ctrl+c to copy the device instance ID string.
Then paste it (Ctrl+v) in your reply.
