Hello every one,

I am having an issue with one of the device derivers, which looks like it is related to some sound because I installed brand new operating system on this cmputer and the moment I did that, it started producing detoriated quality from the speakers of this laptop.

Anyways, i went into device manager and started to llook for problem devices and what I found was that sound devices were showing that everything was fine but there was Other devices section where it showed the problem.

The Id shows me something like this:

PCI\VEN_1180&DEV_0592&SUBSYS_01CE1028&REV_0A
PCI\VEN_1180&DEV_0592&SUBSYS_01CE1028
PCI\VEN_1180&DEV_0592&CC_088000
PCI\VEN_1180&DEV_0592&CC_0880

does not have any entry in the database. I am not sure where to download the drivers from because it does not show me any information anywhere and i do not have the original Cd that came with the laptop that I can download from..

Any suggestions?

I am guessing this is not a white box machine so why not just google drivers for that make and model laptop. Most sites have drivers setup by product then OS. You could easily find it that way.

Ricoh Memory Stick Host Controller

You didn't say which Windows version you are using so go to the Dell site - choose the right version of Windows - open the section for Chipset and download the Ricoh driver from there
