    I've been trying out solutions presented throughout the internet and still haven't figured this out. Let me give you the facts.

    2011 MacBook Pro with OSX Lion and Windows 7 Business install via bootcamp

    Within OSX VMware fusion installed to access bootcamp partition

    Red light eminates from headphone jack when booted into Windows (not using vmware) and sound does not work unless I plug in headphones.

    When in OSX sound works fine and when virtually connecting to bootcamp it works fine

    Tried manually uninstalling drivers and installing a variety of different drivers (included in bootcamp, ones provided on internet ect.)

    Any suggestions other than nuking the partition? (Which I really really don't want to do)

    I believe this was a bug in the early versions of the Snow Leopard boot camp drivers, and it was fixed in one of the early updates. Have you run Software Update on Windows to update the BootCamp drivers?
