ive got no sound on a IMB x22 laptop, in device manage for sound controllers, there is an exclamation mark inyellow by where it says multimedia audio controller. (its not connected up to internet btw)

ive had a quick search but unsure where to get the correct drivers from, the motherboard is IBM 266295G

any ideas/help???
thanks

Right click on it in Device Manager and uninstall driver, then reboot

sound drivers corrupt,

search on google for drivers for that board download onto a pen drive then swap to the laptop and point windows to the pendrive.

i managed to find it, put it onto laptop with my pendrive, but when i went to install it it came up asking if i wanted to continue as it was already there, i said yes anyway, but i've still got no sound
