Windows 7: No sound at all on Asus P5WD2 Premium

11 Aug 2009   #1

Windows 7 RC 7100
No sound at all on Asus P5WD2 Premium

Hello all,

I've installed the RC on my computer, everything works great except I get no sound output at all. It shows that it's connected and playing sound, I can see the green volume bars jumping around but no output. It even shows the front green jack as connected and disconnected when I take the headphones out.
I've tried the original bundled drivers with the RC, the old Vista 32bit sound driver from my mobo website, and the Realtek 2.29 driver. All have no luck at all.
I'm using the 7100 32-bit build.
System Specs are:
Asus P5WD2 Premium Mobo
Newest BIOS
Drivers as above.

Waiting for the new 2.30 to become available but apart from that does anyone else know of anything with this board?
On reading through everyone elses sound problems, Asus motherboards prop up a hell of a lot! I'm not majorly worried too much about the sound at the moment and I know it's an RC so can't have everything!

Windows 7 RC 7100

Just got a cheap sound card from town, installed, put in their driver, no problems with the sound at all out of there. Works perfectly.
Can't get anything out of the mobo board jacks or the front panel jacks still though!
