I have tried fixing it i went into trouble shoot and one of the options was uninstall it then when i boot up windows should know its not there and put it back so i did that but it has come up just the same no drivers installed it just says the driver is ,Standard system devices manfacturer

The DMA controller does not need a software driver as it is controlled by the motherboard chipset (on my pc thats an INTEL chipset).If a device has hardware support(ie the chipset) no additional software driver is necessary and so you will see the message that no driver is installed when you look in Device Manager.

So the answer to your query is that you don't have a driver for the DMA don't need one. You haven't lost it and do not need to go looking for one.....Hope that helps.
