    I'm using a HP Compaq nc6400 and I've recently installed Windows 7 Professional 32-bit.

    Since installing it, I had a problem with my sound, which was as the title states, no audio output device. I've been through several drivers, none of which worked, and I've also tried sound max, which has in fact worked, however I can't stand the little sound bar when you up or down the volume, and it's fairly unresponsive when I use the buttons on my laptop. So in all fairness, I just want the actual driver designed to work with this laptop.

    I do have a version of Windows 7 Home Premium, not too sure if it'd make much difference, however I'd rather not go through another OS install as I've got most of my stuff already set up on this now!

    I am good with computers so don't be afraid to get technical, but I just need another angle on this because it's most likely just something I'm overlooking.

    Thanks for any help,

    Adam

    Your machine according to the HP site has no support for Win7. Are you trying to install the Vista sound drivers? If you are, run the install in Compatibility Mode

    Will the Vista sound drivers be compatible with Windows 7?

    I'll give it a try when I get home.
