You will need to determine what audio hardware you have, and download and install the appropriate software driver for VISTA. If you can't find one, the audio hardware may not have drivers available for VISTA.

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...

for driver downloads. Honestly, I'm not sure if the Realtek driver listed there is the proper one, but it's the only one listed. Post back with how it goes.

I have the window vista soound problem

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.
