I loaded Windows 7, dual booted with XP, XP uses the Gembird sound card, windows 7 will not install the drivers from the cd disc. (I think they are xp only ) windows 7 uses the onboard sound, realtec ac97, but it will not even play that, it goes through the motions, but no sound . from past experience, I know I would have to remove the sound card for 7 to play, the onboard sound, but that is not on. I have tried gembird home page, google and driver guide, they just give me sites where I have to pay for drivers. I don’t want to pay for a driver, that I can only use for a few months my main computer is vista. Anyone know of a free driver download?
