I have a strange problem with audio in Windows 7. I have a Intel motherboard DP35DP with audio on board and is supposed to use a IDT audio driver to enable it. I have downloaded at least six different IDT (Sigmatel) drivers including a windows 7 from HP website and the error I get is hardware detected is not supported by this IDT software. I did contact Intel got the run around and failed with their IDT driver so far.
As I looked around Intel website, I saw that one of my problems was that I didn't enable the audio link and the BP/FP audio to be enabled in the bios. It went further on to state that I should set the high definition front panel to be enabled but this part isn't in the bios.
All of a sudden, Microsoft stated that they installed a HD audio device driver, I connected my speakers to the green input connector and I had audio coming out of the back panel, but nothing from the front panel. It stated that the front panel was enabled as well as the rear panel but didn't work at all.
When I went to Media Player, I was able to play their sample video file. I imported a quicktime video , it wouldn't play sound but played video and realized I need a codec to play this file. I then went to my video editing program called Movie Edit Pro 15, I could play the video but there wasn't any audio.
I installed a old CompUSA Audio card, found the Windows 7 driver rom C-Media went back into Movie Edit Pro 15, played the video and I heard sound at the same time. How can I straghtenout my audio problem so I won't need the CompUSa udio card ?
