    Hi,

    I just reinstalled a clean Windows XP copy in my desktop computer which is of Dell Dimension 4550 model. I had reformatted the entire disk, deleted everything and reinstalled a clean copy of Windows XP Home with service pack 2 into my desktop.

    Most of the drivers were missing after the reinstall.I managed to get suitable drivers for my network adapters and now i can successfully login to the internet.

    In my device manager window, i still have two devices which have a big yellow question mark next to them. They are "Multimedia Audio Controller" and "Universal Serial Bus (USB) Controller" devices. I do not know where i can get the suitable drivers for these devices.

    I have all CD's that came bundled with this computer. Among them are Dell Dimension Resource CD for Reinstalling Device Drivers and Using Diagnostics, Utilities and Online Documentation.

    I need help in finding the right drivers for my two devices. Currently i cannot hear any audio from the speakers of my
    computer. I need to install appropriate drivers to make my speakers and microphone function.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks

    Next time, save your drivers before you reinstall.
