Right, and when I had windows xp, I did get the drivers, but still no sound came out of either the speakers or headphones I would plug in. So what could be the problem? the speakers? the motherboard?
Sorry i wish i could be more help!but i'm a little out of my element when questions go into laptop built in hardware.
i've always managed to get audio drivers to work by going to the manufacturers or oem's website and downloading the appropriate file.
If you were more specific it would go along way.
Maker and model of laptop?
Realtek or VIA drivers etc..
