No audio in Bootcamp :(

Recommended Posts

Hello, new to the mac world, digg and appreciate the maccast.

 

However, i am having a problem with audio in Boot Camp. Currently i have a MBP with the new Penryn processor, and have boot camp install with windows xp sp 2 for games. But after installing a game i realized that there is no audio and i am stumped! I have search all over for a possible solution and so far no working solution.

 

I have:

 

 

  • deleted the windows partion and reinstall windows (no luck)
  • search through the device manager and found out that the PCI is missing with the [!], and try to reinstall it through the mac disk and searches (no luck)
  • i have downloaded audio drivers from realtek (no luck)
  • try reinstall/repair in the windows with the OSX disk but keep getting the "something else is running and it can't update" (no luck)
  • called applecare, they told me to call windows (no luck)

Can anyone please offer any suggestions? PLEASE! This seems like a common problem but there is no answer.

 

Please, & Thank You

Brian

Also, does the audio work with any other apps before you install that game? It could be that the install of the game messes something up with the audio driver. Also keep in mind that the audio driver used by Bootcamp ( even though Realtek ) may not be the same as the driver required for the Mac. Always use the drivers supplied by bootcamp as they are the proper ones for a Mac computer.

Have you installed XP SP3? If so did you install the bootcamp update through windows before you installed SP3? I know Apple has been warning users to apply the bootcamp update before updating Windows XP SP3 ... maybe this is one of the reasons.
