    Default New Install of Win 7

    Hello, I am doing a new install of Win 7 and taking my time at it. I've installed Virus software, and spyware protecto so far and thats about it. I have been trying to get my sound working without luck so far. I have a C Media sound card and in the device Manager it shows the card and says the driver is working properly. It also shows USB Codec in there as well. I cannot get sound to work or even test it so far. I am running a duo core processor. any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks
    Doug

    Have you been to windows up-date and installed all up-dates, including Service pack 1 for windows 7.

    No I havne't as of yet. I just finished the install and had been using whatever original software I had here that worked first. Joe do you have a link to the page I would need? I've always let Windows automatically update, never have had to go there with that specific purpose. Thanks

    I have a C Media sound card
    Do you actually have a sound "card"? Or are you using the motherboard's integrated sound? If a card, make sure your speakers are connected to the card and not the motherboard's audio out ports. That may seem obvious but it is often the simple obvious steps that are overlooked - including ensuring the speakers are turned on.
