Download and install DriverSweeper
run in safe mode
check off realtek audio
click clean
download drivers from Realtek or Giga-Byte
btw my P55-UD5 has the same and i've never had a problem for over 6 months
just upgraded to a soundcard recently

Does your on-board video show up in your Device Manager? Are there any flags to indicate there is a problem with the drivers?

You may just need to select the correct out device in your Control Panel/Sound settings. Sometimes, "Win 7 gets confused as to what to use for the default output device due to many systems having HDMI sound capable systems.

Something easy to check. Good luck!

Hello bennybrooks,


Check out the Windows 7 Compatibility site: (There you will find out about hardware and software compatibilty.)
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/en-us/de...
There is a pulldown from which you can choose "hardware" and "software".
There are also some great articles, instructional videos and such to help with your Windows 7 at our Springboard site:
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/default.aspx
In any event a lot of the times, Vista drivers will work in lieu of Windows 7 drivers, however, it's not 100%!
As stated previously, it's best to have the Windows 7 certified drivers installed.
Microsoft does have an official Windows 7 Support Forum located here http://tinyurl.com/9fhdl5 . It is supported by product specialists as well as engineers and support teams. You may want to check the threads available there for additional assitance and support.
