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.

Good Luck

No. New XP drives will not help you update to a newer version of Windows. Windows 7 and 8 use completely different drivers.
