New Build Sound Issue with Windows 7

Hey,

I need some help with my sound issue. I recently installed Windows 7 64 bit beta on my PC and I have lost my sound. I know there is nothing wrong with my speakers and additionally my sound worked fine for a while ( LIKE A WEEK) with windows 7. None of my jacks in the back will allow for any sound and all I get is a scatching sound. Anyone else have this problem?
My setup is is :

Asus P6T x58 LGA1366
Intel i7 975
Dual EVGA GTX 295's SLI
12GB RAM

  1. Did you install the Vista drivers for your motherboard, especially the one for your audio controller?
  2. I recommend getting the Release Candidate and get rid of the Beta version. There are a LOT of bug fixes.

    I agree that it's likely a driver issue. Installing Win 7 RC may even solve the issue.

    Also, Operating Systems tend to install basic drivers that may not have full functionality.

    You need to find out the EXACT sound card/chip that you have and install the drivers for it. If you have onboard sound I'd expect that Windows 7 RC will likely install up to date drivers.

    You might wish to consider a dedicated audio card. I'm using the Auzentech Forte (PCIe x1) and I absolutely love it. I also have good M-Audio AV40 speakers. Good speakers are really worth it as they should last dedades if not my entire life.

    You can use Vista drivers sometimes for Windows 7 but I imagine you will need 64-bit drivers. Check your motherboard support/download site first.
