Vista drivers, typically, work fine in Windows 7.

Not 100%, but close. ATI TV tuners as an example.

OK

But every time i go to use the realtek audio drivers for vista it says "only windows 2000,XP, 2003 and Vista is supported in this driver package" ??????

Extract the driver to a folder. Install through Device Manager.

just went to realtek site and got drivers but still no sound how do i test to make sure it is a driver problem and not a hardware one? (this a laptop i got off of a guy so i know nothing about it)

Does Device Manager show the device as properly installed? Does the Volume icon show a playback device? Are all the volume controls adjusted, esp the volume wheel/slider on the laptop?
