I get the message "no speaker or heaphones are plugged in" as to why the sound doesnt work. I have tried the front and rear sound plug, different speakers and headsets with no luck. There is only one sound device listed in device manager, "High definition audio device", and when I try to update drivers it says "The best driver software for device is already installed. windows has determined the driver sofware for your device is up to date". The hardware ids are "HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_0882&SUBSYS_1458F603&REV_1001" and "HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_0882&SUBSYS_1458F603". I hope this is enough info to describe the problem. Not sure how to resolve this issue, any assistance is greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance.

I had the same problem with a friend's audio on a fresh install of Windows 7 Professional x64. He had Conexant Audio and was using the drivers provided by his computer's manufacturer page. After much searching, I tried Realtek's AC'97 drivers and the problem went away. I do not know if this will work for you but I am including the link to the site. Good luck!

Is there a brown speaker down on task bar that is the audio manager? If so, thats good, but right click the white speaker for the regular volume control then choose playback settings, right click anywhere in the empty space of that box and make sure "show disabled, and also show disconnected devices" are checked.

What you see may differ from what is shown below. You might have to play around with it in order to complete the next steps. The best way to do this: If you have music on your pc, open up your media player. Choose something to play, let it play. If you don't have music on your pc, use a music cd if you have one.

After you check show disabled and disconnected devices, RIGHT click on your audio device. In my case, it's Realtek. If Realtek is enabled I don't hear anything. When I DISABLE it, sound returns.

If it's ENABLED, disable it. At this point, do you hear the music?

I spent 2 days trying to figure out how to get sound on my new Win7 system. When nothing worked, I admitted defeat and emailed a friend in Canada. He is the one who gave me what I mentioned in my first sentence above. He also stated "just remember i spent weeks, with lots of Rum to knock this out". Hope this works for you, minus the rum.
