    So everything was working fine, until this morning when i installed the new 64x Nvidia drivers and the realtec driver updates. In hope of stopping the random freezing i have been getting (the computer completely freezes and i have to do a cold shutdown).

    Well i have spent the last 2 hours trying to get my sound back, which stopped working after restarting following the installation of those 2 drivers.

    Importantly, when i press F10 or F11 (the mac volume keys) i get no HUD or any change in system sound, this always worked before.

    I have tried rolling back Realtek drivers, and also repairing bootcamp drivers via disk and via bootcamp 2.1 vista update download. All unsuccesfully.

    I have speaker sound coming out on the EQ but system sound is dead.

    Also no sound from headphones.

    Parhaps Bootcamp doesn't support this yet, but will on the release of SL?
