Windows 7: My frontal audio panel doesn't work. Drivers?

28 Mar 2009   #1

My frontal audio panel doesn't work. Drivers?

I'm spanish so my english is not perfect, I'm sorry:

I have a IV880-10 (viewed in CD) AsRock motherboard, "Intel core 2 cpu" , 4coredual-VSTA.

When I had winXP, the front audio panel works perfectly but now with 7057 they won't work. I had installed the last audio codecs from realtek but the motherboard drivers (from CD) are incompatible and they don't let me install it on the 7057.

I tried to install them with the compatibility mode (Vista and XP) , but after the restart win7 was damaged and started a "restore system".

So... frontal audio don't are my life, but i like them because they are very confortable to connect my speakers to mp3, ipod, and nother devices.

I'm a little newbie about this, so please can anyone tell me what have I to do to make my frontal audio panel works?

Do I need to download the 4coredual-VSTA drivers from ? (bios?, audio?, hdd?)
Or simply is the 7057 that in this moment doesn't support my motherboard front panels?
Or.......`[I really don't know!]

If any information is needed, please make me know it.

Thank you!
ˇMuchas gracias!

try going to Welcome To VIA Arena ..., chose the correct chipset drivers for audio on windows vista and install. Or you could also try windows update.

Hi Yakyllan and welcome to the forum,

You need to go to the Realtek website and download the latest drivers, have a look here and get the ones for Vista not XP


Or here for the direct download link
