seems to be an issue with the driver they have released for it, a poll online suggests only about 42% of people are not having trouble with windows 7 with the correct driver. may i suggest using the vista drivers in compatibility mode and seeing if that helps

Hi,

Welcome to 7 forums

* Try what the above poster said.

Additionally:

* In the 'Volume Mixer' in your System Tray, please check whether "Speakers" and "System Sounds" are both in full volume (un'muted).

* If that is ok, please check the BIOS if the sound has been automatically disabled and enable it.

By the way, my windows 7 home premium is in Lithuanian, u think that could effect sound?

Hi,

Language will not be a problem. At this point, completely uninstall the sound drivers and re-install it again. Lets see hat happens !!!
