Sometimes it is as simple as reinstalling the driver.

1 Click on start
2 right click on computer and click properties
3 Click device manager (and on continue)
4 from the list locate sound (there could be other things listed with it)
5 if there is a + before sound click it to expand what is listed with it
6 If you have a question mark in a yellow circle, of any other type of marking in front of an item, it is the one that you need to reload the driver for.
7 right click on the marked item and from the list pick update driver software.

IK Multimedia Production IK Multimedia Amplitube 2 Jimi Hendrix Edition Crossgrade/Upgrade (AT200UJHIN) won't play right on windows 7


Have you tried to use XP mode in Windows 7? In Windows 7 you can install XP mode and attempt to run the software from the virtualized environment. For the download for XP mode on Windows 7, go to this website: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/download.aspx

Another thought that I have is that in Windows 7 - have you searched for an updated signed driver for your sound card? Depending on the model of computer you own - you can usually find the signed drivers at the manufacturers support website. Sometimes, changing the driver you are using for your sound card can also effect how your sound interfaces with different programs.

I hope this bit of information helps!

Updated laptop to windows 7....need updated software for targus acp50


The Targus ACP50US Docking Station does not seem to have an updated driver for Windows 7. You can attempt to install the docking station using the driver found at this link but that may not work as it is only meant to be used for Windows 2000, XP, and Vista. I'm sorry but if that driver does not work, the docking station will not work until there is a new driver for Windows 7.

Thank you for using FixYa!

Can not install Creative Sound Blaster Live! (CT4830) 5.12.01.383 in windows 7


The CT4830 is a pretty old sound card (end-of-life in the early 2000s), and Creative no longer offers any updated drivers for it. If the XP drivers won't work with Windows 7, your only option is to purchase a new card that will.

Just updated from XP to windows 7 64bit. At boot


Your Video driver is NOT compatible with Win 7. It's that simple unless you can get a Win 7 64 bit Driver, you will always have problems, It may work in Compatability mode, for XP SP2, it's worth a try.

I upgraded my system from windows XP to windows 7 32 bit and sound card is not working


leobard_orn

In regards to your sound not working in Windows 7 I can tell you that Windows 7 does handle audio differently then XP did. So you will need to go to the sound card manufactures web page to get the updated drivers for Windows 7. If it is intergated on the motherboard you will need to go to their site to get the audio driver. Note since Windows 7 just came out they may not have a driver yet. However in most cases the Windows Vista drivers would be the same so if the only have Windows Vista drivers you can try them.

Hope this helps
