I uninstalled my RC. I really wanted a change in OS as I've been using XP since birth and just wanted something new. Never really used Vista, just tried Ubuntu the other day and maybe I need to put some time into it, but I'm rather impatience with a new OS than windows.
I'm going try another install and try some of the other suggestions mentioned here
i've had this issue and my workaround is to go to use the older drivers. I've had to choose not to install the sound drivers update through WU almost everytime i put a new build on. Not sure if it'll work for you...
would give these drivers I use a try & see if they install.
I to have the Sigmatel HD audio chip on my board.
As far as I know the codec drivers shouldn't change regardless of the board the audio chip is on as it's audio drivers only & not chipset.
Let me know if they work or not as I've pointed a number of people to this without any reply back one way or they other. Sigmatel STAC 92xx No Recording Devices (Windows 7 x64)
I'll keep an update. THANKS all for the help.
