Windows 7: No sound

MS Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1
No sound

Hi everyone, i have a problem with sound not coming through the speakers and i dont know if this is a configuration problem or that the speakers have packed up. When i test the speakers there is no sound but the test shows movement on the volume bar.

Any guidance would be helpful

openSUSE 13.1 64bit

This is copied from another thread on the same issue that I replied to. This is how I fixed exactley the same issue as you are getting, no sound, but the sound monitor showing sound playing.

Don't know your specs, but I'm running W7 64bit on a gigabyte UD5 board with an i7.

I've had major issues with realtek and my new build with Windows 7, and not getting any sound.

Heres how I fixed it.

  • In device manager, uninstall all audio devices.
  • reboot the pc (it may load default windows audio drivers) don't expect any sound you have removed the audio devices.
  • Download and install the latest real tek drivers from your motherboards website..NOT from realtek.
  • Once installed, reboot the pc- it will prompt you to do this any way.
  • Don't expect sound yet
  • Go to controll pannel and click on the green hardware and sound header, not the list under it.
  • Realtek should now be in the list
  • Select the required speakers (in my case, High Def Audio device, I also use the single green jack on the back of the PC)
  • You should now have sound, I did.
Hope this helps.
