    I am having trouble getting the sound to work for this build. I am running
    an HP PC with the following specs:

    AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+
    1 GB RAM
    RealTek AC'97 Integrated Audio

    I have tried HP directly, the Nvidia drivers, the Vista Beta1 drivers for
    the device and several XP variants, including XP Pro x64. No luck. Has
    anyone found a good driver to use?

    Many Thanks!

    I had the same problem as you, and ended up just going back to x86 drivers
    from the RealTek site. They worked mostly, had their own little glitches,
    but were good enough if you didn't do anything too sound intensive.

    I have RealTek AC'97 as well, and the solution was quite simple: Windows
    Update (from within the Vista UI).

    In short, the drivers are identified but are *not* selected for installation
    by default. You have to manually select which updates are available and you
    wish to install --> make sure you check the box for RealTek '97 Audio (blah
    blah, whatever the wording).

    I did that, and it worked a-okay. I don't have the other toys -- but they
    were getting UAC blocked in previous builds, anyway.

    They are only on WU if you are running x86 Vista.

    Yes, the Vista drivers that are on the RealTek site are x86.

    Heh, this Aero Glass GUI was making it difficult to read the subject line.
    My bad...

    I assume the driver developers are going to wait for Vista RTM before
    unloading the goods (meanwhile working on them now). The drivers adoption
    has been rather slow considering the 5-months-and-counting until gold.

    It's okay, I just wanted to make sure people understood that it was x86 and
    not x64. My apologies if I sounded mean.

    To all guys who have no Sound!

    Try the headphone jack! IN my VIsta my sound only works with the headphone
    and not on the onboard Realtek sound.

    I've plugged in the box plug in the headphone and voila sound, although not
    the it should work.
