Tech Support will refuse warranty service for speaker problems if the VLC media player is installed on laptops with Windows 7. This exclusion is NOT disclosed in the laptop warranty! Remove all players before contacting Tech Support, leaving only Windows Media Player.
I finally followed your directions and my sigmatel audio drivers finally installed. I had to get rid of the pci audio device in the device manager before the driver would install correctly. Thanks very much for your help.
