Windows 7: Digital Audio S/PDIF Problem

Digital Audio S/PDIF Problem

I have a problem with audio, after upgrading to windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit, I installed all the drivers that are neccessary for windows 7. My audio device is High Definition audio device but the only device I can see is Digital audio S/PDIF. Other devices that may be disabled don't appear. I installed all of the Realtek drivers for on board audio device. and I tried installing several others aswell but with no luck. I tried all of the solutions that I was able to find online and nothing works.

When I install Realtek driver, it won't show up in my device manager, or sound (only Digital audio), when I run troubleshoot compatibility on any Realtek drivers it detects that the driver is not compatible with my system. I uninstalled my driver that automatically installs on every boot and then I disabled the automatic driver install, and I disabled automatic updates to prevent auto install of the driver that clearly doesn't work. but on the next boot the driver automatically installs again.

The audio doesn't work when I plug my speakers in any port and I dont have front jack on this PC.

my hardware ID of HD audio device is

Manufacter:ASUSTeK P5L-MX
Audio adapter: Intel 82801GB ICH7 - High Definition Audio [A1]

I totally ran out of ideas, it's 4 days that I'm trying to find a solution to the problem. Any help is appreciated.

Windows 7 Home Premium (64 bit)

click this link P5L-MX Driver & Tools | Motherboards | ASUS USA
Choose Vista 32 bit, scroll down to AUDIO, download driver.

Here is 7zip, it will allow you to open the archive.

Once extracted, open folder created, open 6400, run setup.......that should do it.

what kind of computer or motherboard are you using, kristinarapida?

OP's problem was due to installing the wrong driver. OP's ASUS P5L-MX board does not use Realtek audio drivers as the board uses ADI SoundMax HD audio hardware and needs ADI SoundMax audio drivers.
