The start-up beep is produced by a tiny motherboard speaker and not related to the "multimedia audio controller".
I assume the computer had sound sometime in the past. I suggest you download the free SlimDrivers software. The program will identify, download and install any and all drivers needed for your computer. Just Google the name for a download location.
