Gateway Realtek sound drivers and Vista
I have a Gateway mx6448 and upgraded today to vista home premium. As many of
you have found out there is a definate problem between Vista and the lack of
driver recognition. Anyway heres the trick....
Download the Gateway Vista drivers as directed.... Vista won't find them LOL.
Next go to control panel and open device manager.
Find your sound device / codec
Right click on device / codec and scroll own to properties, click and open
On driver tab at top, click to open
Next click on update driver......
DO NOT AUTO DETECT OR SEARCH
click on browse my computer for update software
Go to "c" drive, cabs, and click to open
click on OK at bottom of screen..........................YOUR SOUND WORKS
AFTER REBOOT !!!
Hope this helps someone.
