Just installed Windows 7, using a motherboard with onboard Realtek AC97 sound. I eventually got windows to realize that this was the sound hardware, and in installed a driver automatically (188.8.131.5243 from 6/18/2007). It appears to work, but nothing comes out of the headphones I plug into the jack. Is it at all possible that this isn't driver related? I attempted to install the newest ones from realtek's website, but the installed driver stays the same, and when i try to update the driver using those files it tells me the current one is better.
UPDATE: I found out that the one from the site actually wasn't being detected in the first place. Installing it directly, or searching for it, neither one applies the driver to the device correctly. I got a 184.108.40.20600 driver from 9/24/2008 installed, and it still has the same problem.
