It's probably missing the driver. If you view the properties, it will tell you what the issue is.

Soundcards usually have multiple pieces within the device manager. The multimedia audio controler is probably one of them.

Okay, do this. Right click on the multimedia audio controller in device manager and choose properties. Under the General tab, it lists the device status. Copy and paste this text or post a screenshot so we know exactly what the issue is.

Also, if you look under Details, there is a Device Instance ID. If you post that, I can try to figure out what the multimedia audio controller actually is.
