    Before I recommend any driver, couple more questions...

    It seems like no brand model. It doesn't say anything like Dell, HP, Toshiba, etc. on front panel?

    How do you know, Multimedia Audio Controller is missing? Error in Control Panel?
    Did you have sound before, and it just stopped working?

    spaaark Techie7 New Member

    where can i find it ? let me know

    because i change my hard disk by myself
    and there it says Multimedia controller missing
    with a yellow "?" before on device manager
    but now after the disk driver scanner recomended
    me to download the realtek ac'97
    i can see now on sound video and game controllers
    that the realtek AC'97 Audio Via (R) Audio Controller
    has a small yellow "!" and when i click on properties
    it says that " this device could not start ( Code 10 )

    thaanks in advanced .

    Using driver scanner is not the best idea. Which one did you use?

    After replacing hard drive, what did you use to reinstall Windows?
    Some recovery CD, or Windows XP CD?
    If the latter, did you reinstall motherboard/chipset driver?
     
  10. spaaark

    spaaark Techie7 New Member

    no i didn't cause the hard disk is from
    my other CPU the intel one so it has have contents.

    it have already installed some drivers
    like the OS and many more :]

    sorry for the bad english :]]

    broni Malware Annihilator Techie7 Moderator Head Security

    It's OK, don't worry about it :)

    Oh, so you just move hard drive from one computer to another without reinstalling Windows?
    If that's the case, it won't work.
     
  12. spaaark

    spaaark Techie7 New Member

    yes .
    how will it work ? :(
     
  13. broni

    broni Malware Annihilator Techie7 Moderator Head Security

    Windows installation is tied up to the hardware on a computer it was installed on, so if you want to move hard drive to another computer, you have to reinstall Windows.

    spaaark Techie7 New Member

    can you please give me some instructions on
    installing the windows but i think
    i dont have the disk of that :(
    and i dont have money to purchase one .
     
  15. broni

    broni Malware Annihilator Techie7 Moderator Head Security

    You'll need some Windows CD. There is no other legal way around.
    Why was the hard drive replaced?
    What's wrong with the 2nd computer.
    Did the computer in question come with any disks?
     
  16. spaaark

    spaaark Techie7 New Member

    because the original hard disk of this CPU
    is only 40GB and this CPU is faster than the other
    and the other CPU is 80GB and slower than
    the one i use .
    so that i exchange their hard disks.

    nothing only the multimedia audio controller
    and others work properly.

    This is very, very strange, but if you say so....

    Install this chipset driver first: VIA Arena - Display Drivers
    Restart computer afterwards, and check Device Manager.

    okaay sir lemme try this
    ill keep online this time
    ill be posting here after the
    installation . just keep in touch
    hehe :)

    spaaark Techie7 New Member

    sir still no sounds
    and still there is a "!" at the realtek AC'97 audio
    in the device manager

    do you have yahoo messenger ?
    for faster communication
    you can add me thugcrips21@yahoo.com
    thaanks .

    broni Malware Annihilator Techie7 Moderator Head Security

    Try VIA AC97 driver from here: VIA Arena - Drivers Section
    There are 4 listed there, but I can't see one which supports your VT8377 Apollo KT400 chipset.
    They're all designed for KT400, so one of them may work.
