This is one of the most common problems when upgrading. You will need to find and install the audio driver for Win 7.
You don't give enough information right now. Can you comment back and give the make and model of your computer or your motherboard. if you have a separate sound card, we would need the make and model of it.
Installing your audio drivers on XP:- ***important
You have to install the "Microsoft Universal Audio Architecture (UAA) Bus Driver for High Definition Audio (sp33867)" first, before intalling the audio drivers Conexant CX20549-12 Audio Driver for Microsoft Windows XP (sp41836.exe).
If you reverse the procedure your audio won't work.
What type of computer is this?
If you are building this unit yourself, and your motherboard does not come with audio. Then you must purchase a Sound card. I think Soundblaster is a good choice...Try clicking on sys information and see if you system has Audio. if so then check and make sure you have plugged your speakers in too the right output port, look at the back of the computer its usually the green jack.
I checked their website. Did you download the sound driver RAM2080 Win Vista x 86 15.02.2007 version 6.10.5337.0?
If so and it did not work it looks like you'll have to update the BIOS (BIOS update RAM2080 _only_ for MS Windows Vista 14.05.2007 version F0A. However BE VERY CAREFUL and follow the instructions EXACTLY, otherwise you may make the computer unbootable.
hi, this is one of the most common problem while downgrading from vista to XP.. get the driver of your sound device...now u can't directly install the setup it wud display no audio device... so do the following... 1. Righty click my computer...click the hardware tab.. 2. click device manager... now you will see a yellow mark on the uninstalled audio device. right click on it and update driver from a specific loaction( where you have downloaded your audio driver ).
this would work...but remember to install the microsoft unversal audio architecture before this.
windows key + R = open : devmgmt.msc Sounds, video and game controlers > (right click) Realtek high definition audio > update driver sofware > browse my computer for driver software > let me pick from a list...> double click on Realtek high definition audio > YES to update driver warning > AND SWEET SOUND IS AUDIBLE :D
The reason for the message will be the fact that windows doesnt recognise that there is a sound device available because the driver for your sound card or onboard sound is not built into XP and therefore you will have to find out what make of audio you have and install the relevant driver.
