    I'm running windows XP through bootcamp 1.4 and I cannot get my sound to work. When I open the Volume Control panel or the Audio Properties panel it says that I don't have a sound mixer. Does anyone know how to fix this?

    maybe you can try reinstalling the boot camp drivers?

    I tried re-installing the drivers and going back to the 1.3 drivers and still no luck. Anyone else have any ideas?

    MBP no audio after 1.4 Bootcamp install, Sigmatel won't install, PCI device failure

    Look in XP's device manager (Control Panel> System> Hardware> Device Manager> System Devices) for a PCI device with a yellow exclamation point. After my Bootcamp 1.4 install on a MBP there was one yellow marked PCI device. After I clicked on properties and manually repaired this device (telling xp to look for drivers on the mac drivers cd), I was able to re-run the mac drivers cd and the sigmatel and realtek drivers installed properly. (Unknown PCI turns into UAA Bus Driver for High Definition Audio)

    Finally, working audio, horray! I don't know whether it is the fact that my MBP is an early model or that my XP SP2 CD is a funny version, but the audio drivers have been problematic every time I've had to reinstall bootcamp.
