Windows 7: No sound at all.

13 Nov 2009   #1

Windows 7.
No sound at all.

Audio Codec - Realtek ALC888S 7.1 High Definition Audio, therefor the soundcard is in my motherboard.

Well I did get windows 7 yesterday, I had XP before that and everything worked fine.
Ive tried to install like 20 different drivers to windows7,xp and vista aswell nothing, I mean nothing works.

Ive done everything, been sitting here for almoste 9 hours now to just clue this one out and still I havnt after googling atleast 2500 times and looking through 50 different forums and thousands of posts and all that,

I can see that my sound works cause the green thing comes up, allthough I cant hear any sound.

Pics on how it looks etc, sorry its in Swedish though.
Id really appreciate some kind of help thanks.

Yes I have I think, it right clicked on speaker and activated it and it says "standardenhet" wich means standarunit kinda in english that might be translated to default playback device I think. The other one just says "Klar" and that means "done" in english.
