Windows 7: Unable to get a Realtek AC'97 Audio Driver to work in Windows7

Since Windows 7 installed the driver by itself the driver is most likely a good driver. Uninstalling it and install driver again doesn't fix anything (one try is enough). Can't help you.

But you did a clean install of Windows 7 32bits. Maybe doing a clean install of Windows 7 64BITS fixes the problem(?)

I used to do a lot of support on the Dell forums and users that upgraded systems to Windows 7 that were not supported by Dell (or other drivers) were faced with this problem and those that wanted sound either installed a Win 7 compatible sound card in desktops or went the USB device route with laptops.

In a few (very few) cases I've seen some sound functions if the sound driver was installed in a Windows XP compatibility mode. Vista/Win 7 handles some sound functions differently than XP and the reason Vista/Win 7 drivers are needed for full functionality. It probably won't work but worth a try.

Thank you for your input and advice. I might just try the Windows XP compatibility mode, but the USB connected sound card sounds like a great way to go, I will have to find out more about that and search the net for a USB sound card.
Cheers
