    Multimedia Audio Controller Problems - no audio device - dell dimension xps
    I don't have any sound on my computer. I reinstalled WinXP pro, everything seems fine except I don't have any sound. When I checked the device manager, under Other Devices, Multimedia Audio Controller had a yellow question mark in front of it. In the control panal under sound and audio devices it reads no audio device and is grayed out
