Just built a brand new system (4 weeks ago) installed windows 7 64 bit and have been trying to get my 5.1 sound working ever since . I would have kept XP ( never had any problems) but my old HDD died, and you can't buy XP anymore.

This 5.1 sound problems seem to go all the way back to July according to posts from others with same problem. There are literally thousands (91,000+) of complaints about this problem on this site alone. Yet in all that time Microsoft never even thought of putting, i dont know, say a sticker on Windows 7 to warn people with 5.1 sound systems that there could be a problem (could lose some sales, rather have lots of unhappy customers than less customers).

I know its a new OS so drivers aren't always compatible but if the drivers on vista worked , and 7 is just a more refined version of vista why not keep the old drivers ?

Nice one Microsoft i'd been thinking about changing to Mac for a while and windows 7 has made my mind for me.

Welcome to the seven forums and I'm sorry to hear you are having problems with your sound. Have you searched through these numerous complaints/threads that you speak of to find a solution to your problem? I had a quick look into it myself and found many many users have had their issue resolved by the very knowledgable members on this forum It's not to say that your problem is an easy fix but it's certainly worth a shot. See if you can find a problem similar to yours using the forum search function and if not, post a thread in the Sound & Audio - Windows 7 Forums section and I am sure some of the wonderful members will try to help you.

While I agree that there seems to be many with the same complaint - most of these are easily resolved.

Good luck and I hope your win7 experience improves

You can use the License For Older Versions

Microsoft will allow you to use a License purchased for the current version of Windows to be used to run older versions, as long as the newer version is removed from your machine. You can't use an older license for a newer version, but you can go backwards. So if you have a friend with Vista, you can use his disk to load the OS, but hold on to your 7 license to make it legal.

We are all kind of frustated with the dumming down of Windows that occurred in the XP to Vista to Win 7 process. A lot of the user functionality and control has been removed and replaced with automated processs to make it more similar to a Mac. Unfortunately Microsoft does not realize that most Mac users are nearly computer illerterate, and seldom use more than one or two programs. And we all are driven crazy by the random rearrangement of menu items and UI layout just to make it look different from XP. If it looked too similar to XP people would think that they are not getting their money's worth. So they felt obligated to scramble the menus to make it look like they did a lot of work on the XP kernel. But a new coat of paint is still just a new coat of paint.

But, that said, Win 7 is far better than Vista. If you dont like 7 go back to XP. Other than looking prettier, 7 does not offer any real functionality that XP didn't already have. And, until the first 7 service pack comes out, Xp is still going to be more stable. Don't cut off your nose to spite your face by going back to Vista.

well if you want to downgrade the os yes its possible ie u need to erase the whole hard drive partition and do a system recovery and format it with the help of recovery discs then you can degrade the os to vista . all the best

Hydrology,

Okay you have stated some pretty far out problems within Win 7, now lets see you back them up. In other words lets see what you have to demonstrate your vast knowledge of the things that are totally wrong within Win 7.

As a Mac user (see my specs) I find your lack of knowledge in both OS's lacking. Both have there points and counter points, and what you need to do if you are going to make a blank statement as you have, is outline to us those differences.

So please step up to the plate, and give us the reasons that warrant your reasoning.

Sorry, but there's just so many things wrong with this post. 7 is far from a new coat of paint on the "XP kernel". NT 6.1 is a far cry from NT 5.1. If 7 is a "coat of paint" for any OS, it's Vista, as Vista and 7 are very similar, but even then, 7 includes some notable improvements that make it stand out from its predecessor. The differences between XP and 7 are almost night and day.
