I have a computer with XP and I cannot run any sound. I have located the issue using the device manager. It appears to be an unknown/generic sound controller ("Multimedia Sound Controller").

I either need an .INF file to install the device or extra special help!!!

Thanks,
~Paul

Hi Paul.
You'll need to start by installing your audio drivers.
For that, we'll need the make and model system. :thumbsup:
Or if you prefer, visit your computer manufacturers website for them.

If you are using the built in sound system, then do this.
You should have a disk with the machine which has the motherboard drivers on it.
If you don't, check inside the computer and note the manufacturer and model number of the motherboard.
Go to the manufacturer's website and download the drivers.
These are usually in a single executable file.
While you are at it, download any other drivers you see there. You will need them one day.
Make sure you write down the name of each file and what the name represents.
WHen you have downloaded them, locate and double click this file.
Burn the files you downloaded to a CD. You will want them some time in the future.
If you have a 3rd party sound card, check its manufacturer, and repeat from step 2.
Cheers
