Realtek HD Audio - wrong codec?

hey all. i'm having issues with the realtek HD audio drivers. i just installed the latest version (2.24 i think) and i have no sound. note, i did not have a prior working version under windows 7 - i just installed windows 7 RC today for the first time.

one possible issue is that it appears to be using the wrong codec - i believe that i need the ALC882 codec, but in windows 7, it appears to have installed the ALC885 codec.

anyone know how to change the codec?

quick update, i was wrong about the codec - XP does in fact use ALC885.

that said, i resolved the issue using info from the second sticky in this forum (regarding editing the registry keys to reassign ports) and rebooting.
