Windows will install a generic "HD Audio Codec" if the integrated audio is detected. According to what I find this has RealTek ALC888 audio.

If there are any Intel motherboard chipset drivers, install them as one of the things the chipset drivers do is identify all the devices (if they are not identified they will not be detected). Also, check the BIOS in case the integrated audio (may be labeled as "legacy audio") is enabled. That too would prevent Windows from detecting and installing a driver.

If you can get the sound device recognized you can download the RealTek drivers can be accessed here Realtek

I can't find anything on the Siemens Fujitsu site. Go to www.intel.com and then click on Support and then Automatically find drivers and software. It will install a small program that will scan your PC. If you are lucky it will list an available Chipset driver. Download and install the chipset driver, then restart the PC and see if Windows installs the "HD Audio Codec" for your sound.

If you are lucky and get a chipset driver, and install it, but there is still no RealTek audio device detection, make sure, as I previously noted that the on-board audio is enabled in the BIOS.

If the audio is enabled in the BIOS and still not detected, as with a chipset driver if none is found, for this old motherboard, I don't know where you will be able to get them. This is an older motherboard and there may not be Windows 7 support available for it.

Hi again,
so the Intel support programm couldnt solve it.
It detects " AMD High Definition Audio Device" as audio driver but no intel chipset...

I checkt the BIOS but cant find anny sound related device to dis/enable, tho i checked several subcategroies.
(i searched for things like "onboard sound [..]" and "legacy audio")

Further, there should be a support for my mainboard, i used win 7 professional 32bit for about 2 years on the same pc.

//EDIT: I installed the chipset driver from this (http://download.ts.fujitsu.com/WDB/F...abe%20filtern?) Page by running the installer in winvista compatibility mode, and may try the audio driver too, tho this chipset driver did not work.

If it worked with 32 bit OS, and not 64 bit OS, with only 4GB of RAM I would go back to the 32 bit version. The main issue with using the 64 bit OS is that it will use more than 4GB of RAM.

Well it worked before I reinstalled windows. Before, I had win 7 professional, installed it about 2 years ago. Then, few days ago I reinstallt windows, couldnt find the old Windows 7 pro cd so i grabed a Windows 7 ultimate and installed the 32bit verion. I had the same problem so i reinstalled it with the 64 version - still same problem.

I know there musst be a solution but cant figure out what to do.
Besides, i still dont know where i can enable/disable the onboard sound in my bootmenu... :/

I can't find much about that motherboard and thus can't offer much in the way of suggestions.

Was the original Widows 7 install a full clean install (reformat hard drive and install)? or was it an upgrade install from Vista? If it was an upgrade install, everything that worked in the original OS would have been carried on to Windows 7 and the reason it all worked.

I allways formated my HDD when I installed Windows 7, this time, and back then when i installed it the first time.

If I realy cant find a solution, will buying a new soundcard solve the problem?

I don't think a new sound card will help, since the existing is not being detected.

One more thing to try. Reset the CMOS Memory (BIOS) and see if that helps. With the PC powered off, remove the CMOS backup battery (usually a CR2032 coin cell battery) located on the motherboard for AT LEAST 10 minutes. Replace the battery, observing the correct polarity. Power on and see if that makes any difference. If the BIOS does not detect a device, Windows will not detect it either and resetting the BIOS sometimes will restore devices that were not detected.

If anything was custom set in the BIOS, it will have to be reset after the CMOS Memory reset.
