    Unhappy [Problem] Windows 7 Sound won't work on BootCamp
    Hello.
    I have a weird problem with my Windows 7 running via Boot Camp.
    I can't hear anything! I have got an original copy of Windows 7 Ultimate installed, everything is working excellent except the sound!
    Any solutions?
    Thanks!

    Did you put in the OSX DVD while in Windows 7 and run the Bootcamp Installer?

    If all the drivers on the Bootcamp part of the OSX DVD are installed you should have sound. Is there a volume control by the clock?

    Also is this a Factory Windows 7 DVD?

    Yes, everything is installed and there is a volume control by the clock.
    What do you mean by saing "Also is this a Factory Windows 7 DVD? "

    Was asking if it an actual Windows DVD or a copy? Not trying to imply anything but since you are having an issue, wanted to be sure.

    Have you tried Windows update through the start menu? There could be an update in there that could solve this problem for you, check both regular and optional update sections.

    Also check the BootCamp icon in the system tray for any updates. Seem to recall reading a few posts where updating to latest BootCamp drivers solved this issue on the new models.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
