Alright so i got bootcamp installed and windows on it and it runs perfect, but there is no sound when i do anything.

I played counter strike and there was no sound and i thought it was just the game so i went to the internet see if anyhting played and it didnt. The sound is all the way up on windows too.

Any suggestions, and sorry for so many posts lately just ive been trying to get everything to work properly and you guys are a great help in it.

Thanks.

First, make sure you installed the drivers from the CD that you burnt when installing Boot Camp. If that's already done, check the Sound control panel applet to ensure that the volume is turned up.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

I got an iMac G5. i didnt install the drivers because last time i did, my mouse and keyboard did not work.

Should they work right away or do i need to edit something when i install the drivers?

They will work right away. The important thing to remember is that you will get scary sounding messages that the drivers are "unsigned". That's OK, you just need to tell Windows to continue to install them anyway. So read those messages carefully before you go a-clickin'

Also, if you're not using the latest version of Boot Camp (1.3), make sure you get that and burn a new drivers CD.

Wait a minute, isn't the G5 a PowerPC chip computer? How does that work??

To be honest, I was wondering the same thing. My guess is that he's referring to G5 thinking that it refers to the generation of the Mac. Because if it truly were a G5, Boot Camp would not be an option.

Just for future reference, G3, G4 and G5 typically refer to the type of PowerPC processor older Macs used.
