My computer is vista but upgraded to windows seven and the built in sound card does not seem to work i have tried different devices and updating the drivers i even changed the sound card none of them seem...

if even the Windows 7 driver for the sound card did not fix it, try to uninstall the audio driver, then let Windows try to detect and install a native driver if available. Then click START, type services.msc in the Search box, then click Services.msc from the results. From there, look for the Windows Audio service, double-click it and make sure the Startup Type is set to Automatic and click the Start button. Restart the computer, open the audio properties, make sure the correct Playback device is selected. If you are using internal speakers for a laptop or external speakers for desktops, select Speakers/Headphones, click Set Default. Then test the audio of your system. Hope this helps.

Sound device

uninstall drivers, go to manufacturers website (, etc.) then download new drivers. If drivers still do not fix the problem i would say its dead. You could buy a external USB sound card which work great, if you have an express slot, they make ones that slide in and you dont have to mess with them. good luck.

I have a creative audigy Creative Labs Sound Blaster Audigy 2 Sound Card and Creative 7.1 surround sound speakers. When I was using XP all 7 speakers worked perfectly. Now with my newer Vista machine,...

Uninstall all sound drivers for the card. Delete all folder and use search to locate everything related to the sound card. Remove card , turn comp on w/o card. Turn off reinsert card.
Should fix it.
Vista has many,many issues like this.
If you have more types of sound listed in "SOUNDS" delete all but Audigy.
Re-install drivers AFTER you get ALL NEW VISTA UPDATES>

I have LG lm70 express it was have sound till i installed windows vista now no sound

You need to have a Vista driver installed  for your sound  sound. Below is the web site that lists all of the products that have Vista drivers available for them. I coudl not find you product but maybe you wil have better luck. If not maybe the only answer woudl be to  buy a different sound card with the Vista driver for it.

Problem with Windows XP recognizing Creative Sound Card

It sounds like a software problem. Though you did the right thing by entering the bios & disabling the onboard sound. That should have been enough. Did you uninstall the old intergrated sound drivers before adding the 24bit card? Just about all the drivers & upgrades for your 4600 through Dell is Creative software & thats why your having a tough time. I would put everything back to how it was. Re-enable the intergrated sound & reboot! Run system restore & check that every thing is running right!! Look at this dell web site for the sound drivers you have at this link:
If you must, install a upgrade for your intergrated sound. Just so you can uninstall it after a reboot. Re disable the sound in the bios. Do not install your new card yet. While back in windows device manager you should be missing a PCI device. Shut down install the new sound card. Hopefully windows will want the drivers & all runs fine. If still no it could be a bad card (i know what your thinking but it's possible). The only thing left is the regestry is using the wrong PCI device.
