hi, i'm using window XP SP2, it works fine but when i upgraded it to SP3, since i upgraded it, the PC get slower and won't recognize my multimedia audio controller(no sounds) anymore.

I have 4 fans installed and removed 1 HDD that has 40 GB memory and make my OS back to SP2, the PC is now back to normal but the multimedia Audio controller still can't be recognize or no sounds.

       My solution of the problem is, first  thing you do is you need to reformat first your computer system before you install or upgrade your O.S SP2 to O.S XP SP3.then about your multimedia audio controller, please make sure that the O.S XP SP3 is a full version  so that it has a complete drivers of all computers. Then any way there is a easy way to solved or solution about your about your multimedia audio controller you can also down load it in the site, just type brand of your computer or the model of the motherboard.

 checked at the Microsoft tech support site and here's what they suggest as ways to fix this frustrating problem:
 
Make sure that a sound device is installed on your computer; if one isn't, just install one. In most cases, Windows will automatically detect the new hardware and install the necessary software drivers. If Windows does not automatically install the software drivers, run the Add Hardware Wizard to install them yourself (click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click Add Hardware).
 
Another program is using the sound device, and preventing the Player from accessing it. Close all other programs so that the Player is the only program running, and then try to play the file again.
The software drivers for your sound device may be missing or corrupted. Try reinstalling the most recent software drivers for your sound device by scanning for updates on the Windows Update Web site or by going to your sound device manufacturer's Web site.
 
The Player may be using a version of Microsoft DirectX that is incompatible with the hardware features on your sound device. (This may explain why you can hear sound when you use some software programs, but not when you use the Player.) Install the most current version of DirectX by going to the DirectX Web page.
 
If you're still hosed, then run the Sound Device Troubleshooter by choosing Tools -> Options within Windows Media Player, then click "Speakers" on the Devices tab, then click Advanced (still with me?) then choose the Hardware tab and choose Troubleshooting after you've selected your own particular hardware.
 
Still no joy? Check out the Web site for the manufacturer of your sound device, perhaps they have some tech note that'll help clarify things? Or, failing that, pull out your sound card or other third-party device and see if things work without it. I've had that problem myself with an eMachines unit…
