Windows 7: Sound Recorder Problem

07 Mar 2010   #1

Sound Recorder Problem

I purchased a Gateway P7806U "Gameing" Laptop that came with Windows Vista but received a free upgrade to Windows 7. I am on SKYPE and it worked great on Vista which was using Conexant HD Smart Audio 221. When I upgraded to Windows7 Conexant was no longer there and sound recorder does not work very well. It records very low (always worked great in Vista) Vista and Windows7 are both installed on this laptop and I can dual boot into either. In Device Manager in Vista under Sound, video and game controlers it shows "Conexant HD Smart Audio 221" but in Windows7 it shows "High Defination Audio Device" My upgrade "kit" contained two DVD's one was Windows7 and the other was Gateway Upgrade for Windows7 which had Apps and Drivers. On the later was "Audio_Conexant_win7_x64_4.98.6.64 (PV)" but when I tried to install it I get error message "Driver install failed: could not find MEDIA for this driver"
Do You have any ideas? Thanks, Robert
