Windows 7: No sound.. please help!

10 Jan 2010   #1

Windows 7 64bit
No sound.. please help!

I installed Windows 7 a little while ago, and my sound hasn't come back. I've tried everything I can think of.. it's telling me my drivers are all up to date, but I think it's lying =/

I believe the problem has something to do with this..

I know I'm meant to have more than one in there, but I've no idea how to go about it =/ Also, it tells me that it's using the 'optical jack' whereas I obviously want it to be using the green jack.. Does anyone know what's going on, and how I can fix it, please?


My motherboard is an Asus M2N-MX, and I use the onboard sound.

What sound card do you have? Try using Speccy if you do not know.

Hmm, idealy, the Windows Vista driver should be operational on Windows 7 for this.

Try and go to the manufacturers website and try to get a driver from there.

If they can't help, Google is your best friend.
