I have a Dell Inspiron E1705. I just downloaded Vista Beta and love it. Except for hot having any sound. My speaker volume is up and not muted. All updates are complete. I did a driver update and it gave an up to date message. Any suggestions

Thank you for your time,

BD

This isn't really the right forum for this question. I'd recommend trying the Windows Media Player newsgroup, since this is more of an end-user question: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/community/newsgroups/WindowsMedia/default.mspx dg=microsoft.public.windowsmedia.player&lang=en&cr=US

I'm going to guess, though, that your audio drivers are either nor installed or not working. Go to Control Panel --> Hardware and Sound --> Device Manager, and look under Sound, video and game controllers.

Hi...I just installed the new drivers for windows vista tonight and also had no sound. By luck I found it. Here's what I did...control panel/system/divice manager/system devices/ I right clicked on system devices then clicked on scan for hardware changes (had to do it twice)...then got sound...hope it works for you!

i had the same problem with no sound.

all you have to do is download an audio driver.

this is probebly the best one to get as it worked fine for me.

it downloaded at around 1kb per second even though i have 8meg broadband, so it took a couple of hours. but its worth it.

download the audio driver here.

If you are using a Realtek AC'97 sound device, then go to the link above and download the Vista driver.  The download takes about 2 minutes. Before you download, unistall all drivers and devices related to the Realtek AC'97.  After download, extract all and then open 6213_Vista_APO.  Scroll down until you see 'setup' (Application 59KB) and click on it. Let it do it's thing and Windows will recognize the device but DO NOT let Windows install the driver, let the Realtek setup.  When it is complete, it will prompt to restart, so do it.

After a few hours of downloading drivers and unistalling and surfing the Web trying to find an answer, I found my own.  If I would have known Vista was going to be this big of a hassle I would have stuck to XP MCE.  You guys are welcome.  Oh, and if anyone is using a different device besides Realtek, sorry.

This is my second time at installing vista as I had the dreaded winload.exe missing error on boot up. Be warned back up your work.

I had forgoten how to sort the sound problem out so thanks Brandon for the help. My problem now is that the set u tells me that it only supports vista/vista x64.....I am using vista.

 

Any ideas, oh and the set up file was 119KB.. have i got the wrong file.

Cheers

 

You would think that for $10Billion they would have this sort of thing sorted. 

Edit....

I have solved my problem. Here is the link, for anyone who's problem isn't solved with the above link I hope this works.

Thanks for a lot of good info, BUT:

I have a Multicenter with MCE, Intel 915p, Realtek etc., and have now used the last days and nights trying to solve my missing sound WITHOUT any luck.

I (clean) install Vista, and then install the (new) drivers according to the manufactors advice. First I install the new Intel chipset driver. Then I install the Realtek drivers. When I install XP, the sound comes on after this, but NOT in Vista. Actually Vista does not find any sound-drivers. But after a lot of struggeling, manually finding/installing the Realtek-drivers, I get the message that it cannot be started (code 10).

It seems that something is missing, and this also matches the manufactors instructions for the XP installation. Because when I install the Realtek drivers under XP I have to restart the PC two times, because the first time enables the Microsoft Audio Bus. Then the second time, the Realtek drivers gets installes. Under Vista I only restart once...

So I have searched a lot about MS Audio Bus, and finds a lot about a new MS sound "initiative", white papers, UUA etc.

BUT I need a solution to make my sound work again - can anybody help

Regards, Henrik (back on XP MCE to keep the multimedia-home running;-)

Hello!

I have just put a fresh copy of Vista onto my machine, it has picked everything up apart from my on board sound ALC655. I have been to the realtek site and downloaded the driver and installed it and nothing.....windows reports the driver has installed but in device manager i still get "unknown multimedia device".

THis is getting really annoying i have removed the hardware and tried installing the driver that way and nothing.....my next port of call is a new sound card but I would rather get my onboard sound working before i go down this avenue!

Anyone any ideas


Thanks!
