Windows 7: No audio

No audio

I have a hp pavilion dv6-1245dx. Came with vista 64, but i installed 7 64bit. I had sounds before the install but now i do not. I redownloaded the drivers and installed with no luck. It looks the the drivers are the same for the vista 64 bit version, i was gonna try those but why would that work if they are the same drivers. Any idea? In my system/sound setting of device manager it shows that the devices are installed and working properly and i do not have any yellow ?'s. And yes my volumes are up and my mute is off... any help? Thanks

Hello!

Do you have the correct device set as default? Right-click on your preferred device and make sure.

any other ideas? Yes i found out where i can select my default device and it is set to default for my speakers, I even click test and it says that it failed to perform sound test. Should i try different drivers? If so which ones would i try?

Try doing a sound test for a different device. Does it work, or does it error again?
