Hi Carl,
I guess I've put too many win98 systems together.  They couldn't tell you
what the card was without the drivers.... unless you got lucky enough to
install one of the few that came preinstalled.

So, are they sending you one?

  Yes I am, however it is not necessary.   One can determine the default
sound equipment by going to Control Panel and open Sounds and Multimedia
Properties and then look under the AUDIO TAB and one can see the name of the
sound equipment.   However I have none.   I have just now made an issue with
the company that furnished me the computer back in 2002, a small Texas
company known as Dell.   Why would they leave off the sound equipment.

  Under the "Audio" tab, there is "No Playback Devices" and there is "No
Recording Devices" and there is "No MIDI Playback Devices".

    Are you comfortable opening the box and reading the brand and model # on
the card?  Then go to that manufacturer's site where they usually have the
latest drivers available for download.  It's what I usually do when I'm
piecing a box together from spare parts laying around.

      I am trying to install sound on my Windows 2000 Prof and I think I
need a driver for Multimedia Audio Controller and I tried to install one but
I cannot find it on my install disk.  The system suggested that a newer
driver is or maybe available at Windows Update page and I scanned my
computer at the website and it returned a message that no updates are
available for Windows 2000 Prof nor drivers.   So, I go to Knowledge
database and can find no driver.   Can anyone offer suggestions how to get
sound on my Windows 2000 Professional installed on a 2 year old Dell machine
with plenty of space free.
