    Hi, hope I can get some help. When I look in my device manager it says that I dont have any drivers installed for my multimedia controller or my multimedia video controller, I dont know how long this has been for. The thing is I dont know how to go about getting any drivers because I am not too sure about my system. I look about on the net trying to find drivers but I'm not sure which to get and I'm a bit chicken to make a decision. The reason I want these anyway is because occassionally my computer freezes while playing video and although this might not be the cause, I thought that I might as well try to get the problem sorted. If you want me to post any more system specifications I can because I have aida32 and sissoftware sandra, the stuff below is from belarc. Thanks in advance for any help you can give.

    Download and run hwinfo32 www.hwinfo.com , it should be able to tell you what the multimedia device and video device is.. Then you can go to www.driverguide.com to download drivers for them.
