Windows 7: W7 does not play any sounds. Need help.

W7 does not play any sounds. Need help.

I've got the RC beta of Windows 7 installed on the 5th.
My motherboard is an Asus P5Q-E with Soundmaxx audio.
I plug my headphones into the front audio jack and it is NOT seen by Windows 7.
I move the plug to the rear jack and it is not recognized.
Go to Sound control panel and the headphones are listed as the default device but it is greyed out and can't be used.
When I look at the volume settings for the system I see the green bars moving. There is sound in there somewhere but I can't access it.
The headphones work.
The front jack works.
According to Windows 7 my drivers are OK.
I do not have enough knowledge to know where to look next.
Hope somebody can help me fix this.
Thanks.

Hello Halfbaked,

First of all, have you the latest Vista driver for your chipset ? You can find it here : http://dlsvr01.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mis...10_Vista_n.rar

Then I heard of that problem, it seems that your headphones are the default device whereas you should have the speakers as a default, try to install the driver i linked in order to see if it can solve that problem.

Good luck !
