Hi guys, I've been having some significant sound problems since installing Win7. I have an MS-7185 motherboard with onboard sound. I have the Realtek AC'97 drivers, version 220.127.116.1185. I have 7.1 surround sound speakers. There's a background sound process (SOUNDMON.exe) which I believe is attached to a RealTek/MSI sound control program, I can set surround sound settings in there, but the program crashes quite frequently, and always resets itself after I change its surround sound settings. I can use the Win7 sound properties to set my sound to 7.1, but that only works with VLC media player (everything else so far just plays in stereo). Quite often, my system won't produce any sound at all, and I have to restart to get sound back. Programs which play sound (VLC, Media Player, iTunes, even clicking the slider on the volume control icon on the taskbar) often freeze and need to be ended in task manager. Any ideas? Recommended drivers? Workarounds? All very much appreciated.
