Windows 7: Sound not working?

31 Oct 2009   #11

Windows 7

Add me to the list of a Window's 7 customer who has no sound. I have a Fatal1ty F190HD MB, 2 gigs ram, 1.5 tb seagate hard drive, all hooked up to a Sony AV receiver connected to a 50" Panasonic with HDMI.

I have attempted to install the Realtek HDMI driver, but get the message "no driver was supported in this driver package" which seems strange since the onboard audio is Realtek's ACL 888 chip. I have also downloaded the Realtek High Definition Audio package, and it shows up on the speaker screen with only the optical connection as a hookup.

I have also attempted to download ATI's Catalyst package, but it only makes a file folder. Meanwhile, the video drivers are shown to the the ATI's and are working perfectly. Fantastic video, no sound, kind of silly for a media machine.

Any Realtek techs out there who can shed some light?

Sound not working

Hi! I'm new to this forum and don't know for sure that there is even anything wrong with the computer. I just bought a new HP G71 343us laptop and the sound is minimal at best, even with volume at maximum. I don't know if it's an HP problem or a Windows 7 problem, but I have an older Dell laptop that will blow you out. Does anyone have any suggestions!

Thanks for the help!

Windows 7

I have Dell Inspiron 1420 which originally came with Vista. After I upgraded to Win 7, everything worked fine. Sound disappeared recently after the computer crashed. I uninstalled the driver and installed an updated one, which didn't help. Any other ideas what I could do without reinstalling Windows?
