    I have a computer that is missing a driver for a "PCI multimedia audio device" Can someone point me in the right direction as to finding it? PC has no sound so I figure this is the problem as the device manager says no driver is installed for this.

    Computer is a emachines running win98se, 766mhz proc., 32 mb ram, 30 gb hdd.

    Thank you

    You need to know the make and model of your sound card to be able to download the correct driver.

    Plug'n play should recognize it but I would suggest you use the manufacture's drivers. Do you have onboard sound or PCI? (do you plug the speakers into a jack next to the moniter and serials and what not, or is it towards the bottom in the expansion slots) If you can't find out who makes it than you will have to open your case and look for the make or the fcc id on the sound card if it is PCI. If you can't find the manufacture, then take the fcc id HERE. If you have onboard then somewhere (usually in the bottom left section of your motherboard there will be the audio chipset. It will say creative or some other manufacture like that.

    Oh yeah... meant to mention this but forgot... your onboard audio is most likely the AC'97... seems most mobos w/onboard aud have that one nowadays.
