Multimedia controller problem

  Beth 18:33 09 Apr 2007

According to System Information this device is not configured correctly. The ID starts PCI\VEN followed by a line of letters and numbers.
What should I be looking for and how do I fix it?

Look in device manager (windows key+Pause/Hardware) now look for the yellow exclaimation mark,right click this and update driver.

There are no yellow exclamation marks in the device manager. I've been through the lot and all I can find is this listing under Components and Problem Devices.

I believe this to be related to your graphics card or audio card drivers.

Have you tried updating those drivers ? or if the graphics needs configuring.Im not the best with graphic card problems and someone else may advise accordingly.

I've checked both and I'm told they're working properly.

I had another look in the Device Manager and I found a yellow question mark. It couldn't do the update because the software couldn't be found. I removed the files and restarted. I get the New Hardware thing but that's as far as I get.

I installed Pinnacle 10 recently and tried that disc as well, without any joy. Is there anything else I can try?

Ok,check your discs that came with the pc and look for driver and utilities disc.

  Beth 19:38 09 Apr 2007

I think I know where they are!
Sorry, but I have to go just now. I'll check back tomorrow when I've found the disc. Hope that's OK. I appreciate your help.

No problem Beth,all the best.

I ran Belarc and the Controllers are listed as NVIDIA nForce4. That's also the name given under Multimedia. I've got an NvRaid Driver Disk which I can't get to run. I downloaded a driver from the NVIDIA site but I'm still getting the 'not configured correctly' problem.

A multimedia controller could also be a modem. If you have one on your PC.

If you do and you don't use it you can either physically remove it or ignore it.

Do you mean a dial-up modem? I don't have one just the broadband router. I just wish I could work out what it is that needs to be configured!
