    How to solve this problem? Not the internal speakers, not the external. Playing games is very boring whitout sound.

    Which BootCamp version?
    All Mac drivers installed?
    What have you tried as troubleshooting?

    Well what have you tried? are the speakers plugged into the right port (as in headphone port not the line in port [>o<])? Are the speakers turned on? Do you hear a start-up chime? When you go to System Preferences>Sounds>Output, do internal speakers or other audio show up there?

    What steps have you don to try and fix this? Your post is incredibly vague and your wording makes it difficult to understand. Do the internal speakers work, or is it only your external? Do you have sound for the rest of the OS (as in opening up files or trashing files)?

    Give more details before expecting a reply.

    Speakers are plugged into the right port and they are turned on. I don't hear a start-up chime. [internal speakers also don't work] It all does work in Mac OS X. Sorry i come from belgium, i don't know how to say everything.

    My speakers don't show up in windows in the hardware-list, so is it a driver problem or something? How can i get this driver?

    If its not working in Windows then it is most diffidently a driver issue. Try using your boot camp CD with the driver again to reinstall the drivers...In the Windows Device manager do the speakers show up there at least as detected?

    Still no Sound

    Well glad the driver reinstall worked for you, but it didnt work for me, I still do not get sound from my external speakers, they are connected correctly, And when I open sound under window device manager my speakers do not show up. How do I redownload the drivers for Boot Camp maybe the sound driver did not get copied the first time I did it, Also when I did the new update for Boot Camp I didnt reburn the files I just used the disk from the first Boot Camp install.
    Thanks.

    Well that's why it didn't work for you.. New bootcamp releases include new drivers, which have to be burned to a CD and installed. Download the latest bootcamp and run it so you can burn a new drivers CD.

    Still no Sound

    :confused: Well, Yellow I redownloaded the new Boot Camp drivers and burnt them to a disk, and then reinstalled them, In the windows Xp enviorment I still do not have any sound from the external speakers, but do have sound from the speaker inside the computer. Do you have any other suggestions.
    Thanks

    If you have sound in Windows from the internal speakers then it's most likely some setting in the Sound Mixer panel, or the physical connections to the speakers. Do make certain to have the latest boot camp drivers loaded as there have been incremental improvements to them over the various beta releases.

    I had the same problems on my iMac, I posted a thread here and the response I got sorted it.

    I've recently started losing sound in Vista, but restarting brings it back.
