Re: my audio doesnt work when i upgraded
Go into Control Panel --> System --> Device Manager. Look for a Sound device or unknown multimedia device. Try updating the device to Realtek audio. Vista should have it's own Realtek audio drivers. If you can't find it, go here...

One word DRIVERS. This is ya whole problem... simply Win 7 doesn't have the correct drivers for your PC. Unless ya have the correct drivers ya gonna always have problems. Find suitable drivers for everyone of your devices and store in a Directory, when you install, then, ya will have the correct drivers and hopefully Win 7 will install fine. Remember also Drivers can be installed in "Computability Mode" for XP SP2. Otherwise stick with Vista?
Start, control panel, sounds and audio devices. Check "volume" and check if to see if the speakers are "muted". If not, select "sound" the sound profile should be "windows default" if not change it by using the down arrow on the side. Try the "sounds" by clicking on one of them like "asterisk" then clicking on the "right" arrow beside the "browse". This should play the selected sound if the speakers are working.
Your machine does use the Realtek audio codecs. Try to download the version available on their website. You have two choices - a standard AC97 or the AC97 HD (you may want to try this one first) one of them should be compatible with your equipment.
NOTE: The drivers available from Realtek have a different version number with them but they are basically the generic drivers for AC97 devices.
This is the specific Vista driver for your computer. If you have been trying others, your hardware probably will not work. Hardware compatibility is an issue with upgrading to Vista. You need to make sure you are getting the right drivers from the device manufacturer, and sometimes you might find none available.
Let's start by not calling it a downgrade, Vista hasn't proven itself to be an upgrade yet.
I have litterally done hundreds of Vista to XP swaps at my shop. Don't be affraid to do an XP reload, manufacturers have realized the mistake of not offering XP drivers for thier hardware and now have them on thier site. Out of the machines I've reloaded with XP, I've only run into a couple of Acers that I had to break down to get the info from a video or sound card. You shouldn't have any problem loading it yourself.
hiya! 1st of all i recomend u to uninstall vista!!!! we should all wait a little more to use them! the drivers are not all yet ready for vista! i believe that the soundbox u have is not very new...if its so, u have installed the driver for your sound card but not for your soundbox..i believe u wouldnt have had that problem in windows xp cause it instals "it self" the drivers.....so, try find your soundbox's drivers and install all of them
The notebook i assume has the realtek sound chip, but at the moment their site is down so click on the link below and download the Vista sound drivers and see if they work for you, but it could be that your motherboard manufacturer does not yet have any supported sound driver for Visat.
