Dual boot Win7 and XP. The integral mb sound does not work. I use a pci csrd which works fine with XP but not W7. Not asking for drivers, just not seeing it at all.

Have you scanning for any hardware changes? Have you tried installing the application (if any) recommended from the maker of your sound card?

If it's working in XP it should work in the 7 as well, all you need is to scan for hardware changes and try installing the recommended application program for your sound card (if any).

Let me know the model & make and I may have even a better answer for you.

Thanks, I do not know where the scan for hardware option is in Win7 that is what I would try first. The card is Yamaha YMF 724.

that is the chipset info which is probably not what you meant. This may be more useful, Yamaha XG PCI sound card-DVO 94V-0-(BO2)

Thanks for taking the trouble, looks like a new card then. I have a usb one somewhere, I will give that a try.
