Vista drivers, typically, work fine in Win7.

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.

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?
