Time PC Multimedia Audio Controller

I've just re-installed Win XP on an old Time PC Model No 00351MR01G4 and can't find a driver for the Multimedia Audio Controller. Can anybody suggest a source? Thanks.

RE: Time PC Multimedia Audio Controller

motherboard in that is an MSI MS-6382E V3 with a KT333 chipset. Some had a generic VIA AC97 audio codec, but most had a Creative codec chip, the CT5880, which was a software implementation of the hardware Creative Ensoniq chips....yeah confusing.
The board isn't documented on the MSI site - it was only sold to OEMs. HP used a lot of them - documented at

However HP dont have a download for it, nor do Creative. However this looks like it may be the right driver
If you get totally desperate I may be able to find an old Time driver disk in the attic
