After i updated from Windows XP Home Edition to WIndows 7 Ulitmate i had no sound so Ive troubleshooted Hardware and Sound, Windows Update says all my drivers are updated, Device Manager says my sound card is working properly, and all my speakers are installed.
I have a Microsoft High Definition Audio Device on a P5VD2-MX SE Motherboard and nothing i do fixes it!! HELLP!!

According to Asus site, your motherboard is not listed as supported in Win 7: http://support.asus....d/download.aspx
You may need to get a sound card.

Do you have separate sound card, or you're talking about on-board sound?
I'm talking about on-board sound chip, which apparently doesn't have a driver for Windows 7.

_Josh_,

Have you installed the chipset drivers for you motherboard and confirmed that they are compatible with Windows 7? Also, prior to migrating to Windows 7 from Windows XP did you run the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor?
To determine if your current computer configuration will be compatible with Windows 7 please go to the following link: http://tinyurl.com/no4xb7

Another resource to verify compatibility is available at the Microsoft Windows 7 Compatibility Center located at the following link: http://bit.ly/1gW6Ns
