Okay, I've been running Windows 7 since January. Actually, January on my old test PC and since early March, my laptop and primary home PC. On the first PC... I call it my "Frankenstein PC"... mostly because it was pieced together with a bunch of PC parts from all over the place... but this is the first that I installed Win beta 7000, installed 7048, then 7057, 2 days later 7068... and just now put 7077 on it. (Been running 7077 on my other 2 since it leaked). This Frankenstien PC has an Asus A7N8X-Deluxe E nForce 2 board with an Athlon XP 3200, 2GB ram, ATI AIW 9800 Pro, and 4 old hardrives. Not on ANY of these builds does the sound work!!! Windows update has downloaded 6 drivers for the nVidia chipset, sound, PCI, SMB, Silicon SI RAID controller, and the Realtek AC97. Device manager says all devices are working properly... no conflicts... but yet, no sound. Yes, speakers are turned on, volume turned up, windows volume up (and not muted). Has anyone else tested with this or a similar nForce2 board and get the same result? I think before the next build I install, I'm going to run vista through it again just to make sure the controller is still working... but I'm pretty sure it was before I even started back in January.
