Hi I needed help figuring out the problem with my audio while running windows while on bootcamp. The audio is fin on the mac side (i use an iMac) but when i go to the windows side (currently using windows7 but same problem happend with windowsXP) the audio becomes almost scratchy and windy and if i mute it i can still hear the game or video im using except more echo like and empty.
I have the most current realtek drivers installed (46 i think) and was wondering what could be wrong and how i can make the sound clear.
I appreciate any help and just a little warning I'm not a big computer wiz so please explain stuff in detail if you can :D
thanks again!

The only thing I can suggest is updating the audio drivers. You didn't mention which version of OS X you have, but if:

You're using Snow Leopard you should be running Boot Camp version 3.0 at least. Download and install Boot Camp 3.1 from Apple. Be sure to download and install the version which matches your Windows 7. (32 bit or 64 bit)

Sound in Windows XP and 7 is plug and play and doesn't really require any fine tuning unless you don't have the proper drivers installed.

Regards.

windows 7 boot camp audio fix

The solution to audio not working in Windows 7 running in Boot Camp is to download and install the latest (2.14) Realtek Drivers. Select the High Definition Audio Codecs (Software) link, accept the license agreement, and after the download has completed run the executable. You may need to reboot your Mac (back into Windows 7) for audio to work. Here's a link for where you can download the Realtek Drivers: Realtek.

Hope this fixes your problem.

Cheers
