Windows 7: Sound Cards **That WORK**

After playing around with it, in addition to my Xtreme Music that is working great, the HDMI audio on my ATI cards (both my HD4830 and the onboard HD3200) is working no problem.

P.S. For what it's worth, can also run up to 4 monitors with the onboard enabled.

For all Audigy 1/2/4 owners: look for Daniel Kawakami modded drivers! These works perfectly with Windows Seven RTM:
No More Goat Soup

Well, the Xonar fix worked great...except I can't use my microphone. Might be unrelated, I have no idea. O_o

(And yes, the mic is plugged into the right port...)

I don't know if this is any use to anyone, but I'll post it anyways. I have manage to get the Turtle Beach Santa Cruz sound card to work on Windows 7. Be it that the sounds are great considering how old the card is. I will say that the game port part of it wouldn't install no matter how many times I un/install the drivers. I found this a a month or so ago, but the Voyetra Santa Cruz drivers I found to work are the sc_4193 drivers,..instead of the sc_4161s (which worked great on XP). However there are experimental drivers, but they do in fact work. I have noticed no distortion or anything with a lot of bass or any hissing with treble.

I did notice that if 7 installs the Realtech ac97 drivers for the onboard sound, windows will stop and restart itself every time you access the control panel( window has encountered an error and must close....). I just went to the device manager and disabled the realtech drivers and the gameport option ( 3rd TB listing in device manger) and haven't had a problem since.

This is currently running on my media pc, which I built out of old pc parts I had lying around and wanted to see what still worked, and to also see if I could run Widows 7 on an old AMD T-Bird and a Gig and a quarter of RAM. My build on W7 is 7600.

I have 2 pc's with cards built in
Realtek AC97 Audio
Realtek AC High definition
Both of these have drivers on the Realtek website which work both in 32 and 64bit. Sometimes they need a bit of fiddling around but I have sound on both.

You might need to enable mic boost or something because my mic is working fine with the latest Xonar drivers and the Vista patch.

I actually did fix it.

Uh...somehow. It seriously just started working, I didn't change the drivers or anything.
