Specs: Windows 7
I insalled windows 7 on my computer, originally was XP but caught a bad virus and wouldnt start up. Now it says there is no sound device. I am also seeing htat it also says vista compatable. Im trying to figure out how to get sound and/or if I need to get vista instead or if this windows seven will work.

Go to this page and download the drivers you need. Some Vista drivers are compatible with Windows 7.

hey, seems your audio driver is not installed correctly.

check your motherboards brand and model and go to
manufacturers website then download the driver 4 your audio

u can also use some driver updater app. like Driver Detective,
Driver Agent or Advanced Driver Optimizer they will get you
the latest updates 4 ur drivers so u don't have to search them.

u can try there trial version to see if they show updates. I
prefer Advanced driver Optimizer as with it I have to just scan
n update all my drivers in single click.

u can download it from (

Audio drivers are installed when you visit Windows Update.

When you install Windows, minimal number of drivers are installed, such as gfx card drivers, ethernet card drivers, etc. that are really necessary for proper initial operation of Windows.

Other drivers are installed when you visit Windows update, such as sound card drivers, USB printer drivers, etc. This is to keep Windows install time to a minimum and to make Windows DVD size small.
