    You used the leopard disc to install drivers?

    Realtek driver

    Try the Realtek web site or google "realtek high definition driver", I believe it is the same installer for XP and Vista (R186 or something like that)

    Regards,

    Check the sound Settings in Windows Control Panel.

    If it doesn't work, my suggestion to you is to download the trial version of Parallels Desktop and give it a try by running your Boot Camp partition on MacOSX via Parallels and see what happens.

    i've already done this... the driver doesn't take. Really irritated at this point, even called apple support. Nothing.

    My experience was:

    1.run the installer first time to uninstall the old driver
    2.restart
    3.run the installer again to apply the new driver
    4.restart

    Sorry if you've already done all that - not sure what to do if it still doesn't work

    Hmm, I just got my XP up and running tonight with Boot Camp.

    Immediately after Windows first booted up, I installed the Apple drivers from Disc 1. Then I ran all the other Windows updates. Hooked up a speaker to the headphone jack and everything sounds great.

    On a side note, did ya'll check out that fancy NVidia Control Panel? Pretty Sweet.
