    Not sure how services work in Windows 7, but assuming it is similar to Vista...

    Start > Run > services.msc

    Is the Windows Audio service started and set to 'automatic'?

    Hm, well bear in mind that since Windows 7 is still an RC, manufacturers likely have other priorities this far away from launch.

    It could well be that the drivers designed for other OSes simply don't work on 7, although I did hear that drivers were pretty flexible between Vista and 7. Hm.

    The Vista driver should work fine... just download the chipset from the BIOSTAR site for VISTA if services.msc is not working for you.

    I think that's what he did, the services thing was different.

    Another thing to try if the Vista x64 driver refuses to install is to run the installer in Vista compatibility mode.

    Stupid! you will say but I've fixed several driver installation issues on the Win 7 beta this way. The reason behind is that some crappy installers checked for a specific version of the OS and simply refused to start when Win 7 reported itself as Win 7, although they had no trouble at all when Win 7 reported itself as Vista. :eek:

    True, true. Even HP is recommending a trial with VISTA compatibility mode when things go awry.
