Re: Vista says AC '97 audio working, but media center says no device
When you open the Mixer and right click on Devices is there more than one
possible audio device listed there?
Could your Realtek device possibly require the Realtek High Definition Audio
drivers IPO the AC97 codec?
I found that the MS Updates driver for the Realtek high definition audio did
not work properly. Several of the possible speaker output configurations
were missing and only the front speakers worked in the 5.1 setting. The
drivers downloaded from Realtek resolved the issues. Along with the Realtek
driver there would be a Microsoft high definition audio controller driver
that should also be installed, listed under System devices in Device
