It can do great harm if an old legacy application does something Windows 7 doesn't support

Have you tried Turning off "All Sound Effects" under speaker properties and changing the default format either lower or higher?

Where abouts it that mate? Unfortunately XP compatibility mode didnt help either. Just to show a screendump that everything appears to be installed okay...

No I didn't. For some reason I kind of prefer the XP panel....

I'll try it when I run out of other things to play with and get a little bored

Dual booting Vista & 7 Ultimate
 
 

Found three sound cards to try in my house!

First one was some old black unbranded board, obviously faulty as conflicted with any other PCI card in, including my graphics card, so that was obviously a no no.

Second was an Xwave 4000, very old, (says to install 95/98 drivers!) so that didn't work, and try as I might, couldn't find any Vista drivers on the net.

Third was a Sound Blaster, PC wouldn't even recognise it was plugged in which is a shame as it's not that old iirc.

I think I might have to give up, and get a card which is definitely compatible with Windows 7. What card would you recommened which perfect for Windows 7 for someone on a budget!?

Windows 7 Build 7100
 
 

I had these same problems when I did an upgrade from Vista and the old vista drivers were still there, (crackling and such). So what I did was reinstalled doing clean install and everything seemed to work fine. So I don't know what to say but it is a pre-beta so I am sure this will be fixed. Vista had sounds issues on my computer last time until SP1, so this is definitely better.

Also, green check mark only means that it your default sound device.

He is right, sometimes you can find drivers online if you have the skills you can modify the driver to make it work in 7.

Since this is a fresh installation (3rd time. New HDD. I must like it ) I tried installing the audio drivers with Vista Compatibility Mode and it still gives me the XP control panel

@Kayzee

With the Xwave 4000 did you try the XP drivers in Compatibility Mode? It's a long shot, but may be worth it:

Labway Xwave 4000 driver - Labway Sound Card Drivers - als4000_xp.zip

Even though I've had a few oddities with the drivers in 7, I really don't have any problems. It's more the Control panel side of things. (It will undoubtedly be rectified in time) The sound card in My System Specs was pretty cheap and is a great card for the price.

I have also noticed that when you go to NVIDIA driver website, it shows as XP in there OS line. When you visit the site from Vista, you will see Vista in the line as it should.
