Need help with sound for Virtualbox

Postby k4ever on Sat Jan 22, 2011 2:51 pm

I'm running LMDE with the latest updates (as of this post) on my Gateway 7510gx laptop. I installed the non-free version of Virtualbox from the repository and set up Windows 7 as a guest OS. I cannot get sound to work under Windows 7. I even upgraded to the latest version of Virtualbox for Debian from the website and still can't get sound for my Windows 7 guest. I've tried every sound configuration for the guest machine. Is there a problem with Virtualbox on LMDE?

According to the link above, you'd have to manually install sound drivers within Windows 7.

Vincent. I've done that. I downloaded drivers from the Realtek site, with no luck. I wish they would provide a link to audio drivers that work, since they (vbox) only allows you to use one of 3 (Intel HD, Intel AC97, or Creative Soundblaster).

Vincent et al, please disregard. The sound is working great now. I had to reinstall Windows 7. Apparently I had a bad install. The sound works automatically now in Windows 7 with Virtualbox 4.
