Need some assistance getting proper audio drivers for an HP Media Center m8067c desktop. It originally had Vista Ultimate. I clean installed W7 home premium 64-bit today, and no yellow marks are showing in the device manager, but I have no sound. I tried the Vista 64-bit realtek audio drivers from the HP website, but to no avail. All that is showing in the device manager for sound is 4 entries that say NVIDIA High Definition Audio.
THe motherboard appears to be an asus P5BW-LA, but that model doesnt show on Asus' website.
I went to PLayback Devices, and it says No Audio Devices Are Installed. I'm am actually trying to help a friend over a remote session. It's installing SP1 at the moment. I will have him check BIOS after the service pack install and verifiy in the BIOS that onboard audio is enabled.
After your comments, I'm thinking the Nvidia is probably the HDMI port on the video card i installed for him earlier today. I never tested the sound when I had it, just did a quick inspection in the device manager to make sure there were no devices marked.
He turned onboard audio from Auto to Enabled and rebooted after the service pack update, still no sound. Remoting in now to take a peek. Worst case scenario, I have an extra sound card I can install. Just don't like being defeated.
