Here's a screenshot. Trying the driver now. Will edit post with results.

(EDIT)While trying to install the driver, I keep getting a pop-up that says "Windows can't verify the publisher of this software." (See screenshot attached) I click the option "Install this driver software anyway" but the error message keeps showing up. Is there some way to disable this security?

From your screen shot it appears the driver installed. You can click on it and properties to see if it says it is working properly. If so we can go into sound devices in control panel and check the settings. On the other screen shot you can click on see detials and the reason why.

Everything looks fine in the device manager, but I've still got no sound. No devices show up in the Playback tab. There is a High Definition Audio Device in the Recording tab, however. Although it shows up as unplugged. See attached screenshot.

Well we tried forcing the driver through update driver>browse my computer>let me pick>have disk>browse>navigate to downloaded file>click (or double click).inf file>click ok>next and let it install which updated driver but produced a yellow triangel.The only other suggestion I have is to try one of the latest XP drivers in the W.U.C. in compatiblity mode XP. Or find a AC97 audio driver. Sorry I couldn't have been of more help. Fabe

Hello there,
I know this might be a bit obvious, but have you got the built in sound device turned on in the BIOS ? My brothers computer has an identical motherboard and we had problems with the internal devices so I turned them off and bought a plug in card, a Sweex 5.1 PCI sound card, that installed OK in Windows 7, and works fine.
Just to check things, I just pulled the PCI Sound card and turned the internal sound device on and let Windows 7 try and find and set it up, started OK, went to the Winodws Update thing and downloaded something, but the installation failed and rather unhelpfully told me to contact the manufacturer. I don't think there are any Windows 7 drivers for the internal sound device.
Get a plug in card, it's easier
>
On a seperate note, if you don't mind, about your Graphics card. Brothers machine has an Nvidia Maxi Gamer Phoenix 2 installed, which runs Win 7 but with no Aero. I did get a PNY Verto GeForce 6200 AGPx8 256Mb 64bit card as I thought it would be OK, but it won't install, I get one long beep from the computer and nothing on the screen, so obviously it's not the right card. Your Radeon X1650 Series 512MB, does it work OK with Win 7 and allow Aero to run ? We have more or less the same system specs as you [note, not the ones listed on my profile, that's my computer]. If you can spare the time to pass on any thoughts about your Graphics card I'd be real greatful as all we need is Aero working and we are away
All the best,
Mick C.
