i was going through my add/remove programs. So i saw something i didn't really recognize and i got rid of it didn't look important, called :tazz: soundmax something ;) . so then i reseted the computer for all the changes to take place and when the computer finished rebooting it said "new hardware found" "If an installation CD came with this hardware please insert it now." but i didnt have one, because this hardware/driver thing was already installed in the computer when i bought it. They didnt give me any CD. Ok so then since i didnt have a CD i just clicked next, then it gave me to choices "custom install" and "automatic install (recommended)". So i clicked auto, then it started searching for the "Multimedia Audio Controller software". it couldnt find it. it said "the drivers for this device are not installed. (code 28)". Under sound/video, etc.it shows several audio components including Audio Codecs, Legacy Audio Drivers, WDM TVAudio, all listed as working properly. But the Multimedia Audio Controller has an exclamation sign beside it. Can anyone PLEASE HELP ME? thank you !!! ;):(:help::(

Firstly Sam...don't worry. I too have accidently deleted drivers ( it happens to the best of us!).
That being said, is the sound card built into the motherboard or is it a separate add in card?

If it's built into the MB, I'd go to the MB's makers website and see if theres a driver available for the audio chip.

Same thing it it's a add in card. ie...Sound Blaster, I'd go over to the manufacturers website and I'm sure you'll be able to find the appropriate driver.

Let us know what happens. :tazz:
