I have a Intel Celeron e1400 @ 2Ghz cpu on a zotac mobo.I had xp installed on it and my sound was working fine.I upgraded to windows 7 and suddenly there were no more sound.The sound icon were present in the bottom right corner on the taskbar, I ckecked again in control panel for sound and sound seemed to be present, yet no sound sound waves seemed to be streaming through my speakers, not even when I plugged in my earphones, or when I installed my mobo's sound drivers that I got when purchased my mobo. I decided then to re-install windows xp and vioala!(am using correct spelling here?, anyway..)sound were present again.Please help me here. I love xp, but I also really want to upgrade to 7, it just seems so much cooler and has such I current feel to it.
