Vista x64 and Windows 7

The headphones that work.... they aren't USB ones are they?

Can you check in DEVICE MANAGER to see if your soundcard is listed there and if it has a driver loaded for it?

Windows Vista (32-bit/64-bit) Sigmatel Audio Driver version: 6.10.5337.0

Please post back if it works.
