Windows 7: No Right click Still on Radeon 3670...argh!

If laptop, you have neither AGP nor PCI-e. You have integrated video built on as part of laptop mainboard.

Those apps were telling you something is wrong with your audio device driver. Most likely, none installed. Do you ever hear anything when you start the laptop up and Windows loads?

Post a screenshot of the device manager showing the sound section maximized. We should be able to sort this for you with that.

Also, right click the audio device you have. Properties, details tab. Change dropdown to hardware ids. If you need a driver, this will go a long way to helping find one. Copy and paste what's there to here.

Audio drivers

I have been up and down with these stuipd drivers. If you use WDDM MS driver audio will not work.

Just go to device manager go to your audio devices, choose update drivers for ATI sound, then choose from a list and you will see the ATI audio driver there (provided it worked at one time).

ATI, Dell and MS all suck for not being better at drivers. It makes me sad Ive done PC work for 10 years and its the same ole finger pointing crap. Mac commercials are true, even sadder to say.

Well that explains that lack of info.

I have the IDT audio working fine. I hear all boot sounds , media etc. I did b4 installing the audio sw.
5.1 is working. etc. What has me so Po'd is that ati ,Dell amd are all over the place on the radeon card drivers and software! It is so frustrating. I am seeing from a Studio xps 1640 thread on notebook reveiw that this is a system wide area of consternation. In short: It's killing our Windows 7 buzz!

That is no longer possible as it only happened upon initial install for wmc and Zune 4.


Also, right click the audio device you have. Properties, details tab. Change dropdown to hardware ids. If you need a driver, this will go a long way to helping find one. Copy and paste what's there to here.
I am confused. This has been a video issue. Audio is fine.

"WMC as well as installed Zune 4 sw & both reported that I did not have a proper card to run audio"

Ya, that definitely sounds like a video card issue to me.

I was just about to post that I reported the wrong incident. It has been video all along. Not audio. I apologize. People get tired and pissed off and they make mistakes.
It truly happens to the so called best of us...just ask Steve Jobbs

Also I had thought you knew that I was running what was listed as my main system. I do not deny I made an error. I have NO idea how audio got in there. Probably due to cross forum posting and the bs amd/ati (nice merger) has been throwing @ 7 users.

Thanks for recognizing a seriously stressed guy
If you are still willing to help I sure could use it. Called Dell today. Yikes.
nuff said.
So where I am @ now is that I have to be on the road in a few days (I'm a musician) so I've been forced to throw Sonar & various large files on my laptop, so a clean install is not ( for now) an option. A new development is that every other boot (serious) has Win 7 telling me that I do not have the 3d accelator to even run the bubble screen saver! Man.
My Inspiron 6400 runs that & it has an Intel video chipset.
I have read in the ATI forums about a modifier prog that will enable 9.10 to install in my xps. But then I have read a lot of things.
What would you do @ this point? I am willing to say F it to ccc & just download the 9.10 driver but that does not install. A problem often reported by a vast amount of people. Dell has a 3670 up date but, get this, it turns into a 4670 install when one clicks on it.

So I am now just looking for the latest driver. I give up on the control of anything via hue, alias whatever. I just need a solid driver.

So....thoughts?
Thanks.

It says ( in this ever other boot into standard account) that I do not have Direct x9 installed. Are we not @ 11 or 12 now? I also thought that would be in the 9.9 3000 suite dl'd.

Without reviewing everything and just going by what you're saying now, run
sfc /scannow from elevated command prompt.

When done, install using the modder. Fixed. Done.

If not, search the forum for how to post hardware id strings. I'll make you a custom inf file and chances of installing with that are pretty much 100%.
