Accidently deleted Audio Driver RRS feed

  • Question

  • I was using "Add/Remove Programs" in the Control Panel and accidently deleted the program for my audio card. I think it was Creative AudioBlaster.  I don't have any original paperwork or disks associated with this card. The computer was custom built so the card was purchased separately from the computer.

    In the device manager, the Multimedia Audio Controller showed a yellow question mark and it was marked as "disabled".  I enabled it and tried to reinstall the driver but cannot since I have no original disk.

    How can I get another driver?  I don't know the exact model of the current Sound Card.  Do I use any driver from Creative Audio Blaster?  I didn't want to try that before getting some advice.  Thanks.
