No sound in Windows 7 after Boot Camp (IMAC MID 2010)
I really have tried everything that i could find on forums and blogposts about getting the right driver for the sound. But nothing works.
I have an iMac 21,5" from May this year, I installed windows 7 with boot camp 3.0, and did everything as described. Every driver worked, exept the sound driver. I upraded boot camp to version 3.1, but without succes, I also tried to reinstall the drivers for several times from my Leopard os x disk.
But nothing seems to work.
When I open up the configuration for the sound, the thing says there is no device founded.
I even tried other music boxes, but with no succes.
I have Windows 7 in 32 bit.
The problem is that Windows cant't find any speakers, boxes, and even the build-in boxes from my iMac. When I open the control panel for "sound" in the configuration menu, I can see that there isn't any device installed.
How do I fix this? Should I get other drivers?
I have also tried installing the following drivers from the realtek site:
* Vista, Windows7 Driver (32/64bits) Driver only (Executable file) R2.51
And all the others with windows 7 on it..
*ATI HDMI Audio Device R2.49
-> This driver won't install properly: Just before it's finishing it says:
And, I also have noticed, that when i go in program files > Realtek > the .exe program won't do anything. I'm wondering if the driver does install correctly?
Has anyone advice?
(Now I remember why I choose a mac, there is no driver-rubbish. It just WORKS ;D)
The correct sound drivers are on your Snow Leopard DVD. If all the other drivers are working OK, the sound should likewise work. What is strange is that Windows 7 is saying that there is no sound device installed.
What happens when you open Control Panel, System, Hardware, and expand the hardware tree? Does it show a sound device at all? Or is there a ! (exclamation mark) over the device?
Here's a LINK that is from a search in these forums regarding your problem. You may be able to get some information that might be useful to you.
There is indeed an (!) on the symbol of High Defenition Audio Controll
I've reinstalled windows, but again with no succes. The same problems as described up here. The device manager gives the same yellow exclamation mark...
Your hardware tree is missing an entire device entry:
"Sound, Video, and Game Controllers"
That's the reason you have an ! over the entry for "Hi Definition Audio -" it's because you have no sound device installed. It looks like Windows is not detecting the RealTec sound device for some reason. That's why you can't install a driver, even if it's the correct one.
Take a look at this LINK. Go down to the bottom of the page and see if you can follow what he did to get sound working on his 21.5" iMac. Let me know if it works for you.
Try downloading the latest Realtek (or Intel) HD drivers from the Realtek website to replace the old driver from Bootcamp. I had this problem last year with 10.5 and iMacs and the driver supplied installed ok but didn't work. I had to download a new driver.
