Windows 7: no audio output device - realtek ac '97

no audio output device - realtek ac '97

Hello all I have Win 7 32-bit on my gateway mx6437 and am having the same problem that several people are having here - no sound. I downloaded the latest Realtek AC '97 drivers from the Realtek website. I checked to see if this card was compatible with Win 7 32-bit from the compatability website. Right now the drivers are "installed" but Win 7 says its unsuccessfully installed.

I have an AMD Turion 64 card. Please help I've been researching this issue for the past 2 weeks without success.

akeemdadream, welcome to the forums.

One reason it isn't working is that according to the download page for your laptop,

Gateway Support Drivers & Downloads

based on the audio driver frm there it has the Conexant audio chip in it, not Realtek. I would start with uninstalling the Realtek driver and any software that may have been installed with it, then use the Vista Conexant driver from gateway,

Windows Vista Audio Driver version: Conexant 6.14.10.0575

which should install without much difficulty (no promises, but it should install).
