    Phonograph player into line-in on SigmaTel sound card has no sound. This
    worked w/ XP, stopped after Vista installed. Speakers work fine on everything
    else.
    Windows Vista help says go to speakers properties, & lin-in is mute by
    default. (Help picture shows Volume control,Phone Line,Line-in, Aux &
    Micrphone; but when I go there mine only displays the volume control & the
    other items are midssing, so I can't unmute. I can't record anything.

    If the phonograph player is just a turntable meant to be plugged into a
    stereo system the output will be far too low for an computer input. You will
    either need to plug it into an amplifier system with a "line out" first and
    then plug that into you computer, or obtain an inline amplifier that
    duplicates that function.

    I had a sound problem with my onboard SigmaTel audio following an upgrade to
    Vista. In the end I updated the driver for SigmaTel audio for my motherboard
    from the Intel site and it solved my problem. Just one of the XP to Vista
    bugs! Hope this helps you.

    Thanks for your reply - it sounded like the answer, so I downloaded the
    latest SigmaTel driver from Intel, but it didn't work. When I try to check
    SigmaTel through the Control Panel, it says the driver is "inaccessable. Make
    sure it is installed and enabled." Checking for the line-in connection, it
    says Digital Input Device (SPDIF): High Definition Audio Device is working
    but not plugged in (it is, of course, & was working before Vista.) It also
    says it's a Microsoft driver, not Intel. Did it replace & disable the Intel
    driver? My Intel board is a D946GZIS.
