When I went to Vista I had to remove Realtek, in the registry also. Then SoundMax was great. Went to 7 and not hearing a thing. Any idea where I should look for a remedy? Whenever I go to the HP site it basically tells me to buy a new computer.
I still have the 2.14's.... pm me if you want them

I have the same problem. Ive tried the R217 drivers and some other drivers. I think the drivers work but my output is set to "rear panel optical jack" and i cant change it.

I want it to work with the regular output.

I have tried the tips in the sticky, but I can seem to find the right registry key... I think this is the problem for most people here also.

Can anyone help?

What i have found

I have an ASUS laptop that I have used AC97 drivers on since I have owned it. Since putting on Widows 7 all that will show up is HD audio I have tried several differant downloads still nothing I can not get oboard speakers to work. I tried my set of usb speakers and wouldnt you know it they work fine. although i can sound I still would like to get my built in speakers working any ideas at all?
