Windows 7: Upgraded to Build 7077 - Staticy Sound now

Upgraded to Build 7077 - Staticy Sound now

I upgraded (not a clean install) to 7077 today from 7048. I reinstalled the latest Realtek Driver, and my sound is staticy on files played from WMP 12.
I had this issue before on both an upgrade and clean install of 7057, which is why I went back to 7048 among other reasons.

Anybody have a tip, trick, or fix for this? I have tried different sound settings, some are worse than others, but there is static or skipping sound in all media files.

Thanks in advance!

Not a good move to upgrade. These builds are not designed for upgrades and so will not remove the previous files completely.
I recommend you clean install.

+1 .....I tried an upgrade ONCE and that's all it took. I had sound problems too. Delayed sound and static. I did a clean install and it worked fine. That was on 7048 so....I think Romulinx is right. (or it's the easiest way to fix this and other problems too)

Thanks guys for telling me what I already knew had to be done, and providing me with the push to go ahead and do it

I bit the bullet, and just got finished with a clean install as well as reinstalling all my apps. Sound is crystal clear now!

Glad a Clean Install worked for you. However, I have Seven build 7000 and have Static and horrible sound issues. It Was obviously an install and not an update.

Any tips?

I think the torrent was slightly damaged. That, or the sound drivers for your speakers are dysfunctional or junk.

You could download the lates drivers for your sound card. As each passing week/month goes by more & more drivers are being created with support for Windows 7.

Upgraded Vista to Windows 7 build 7077 x86
Have done an upgrade from Vista Ultimate x86 to Win 7 7077 x86. Absolutely no problems, went as smooth as can be. Increased speed, even though there is only 2GB RAM and 160GB hdd. Vista felt sluggish and slow. It has now grown wings. :D
