Vista tip:

Step 1. Uninstall Vista
Step 2. Install XP or W7

Sorry but I couldn't resist :P



Anyone had problems with sounddrivers before? Someone I know got Vista and is sick and tired of it.. When a game's running for example WMP won't play songs or youtube movies don't have any sound.

More likely the drivers are muting the other sound outputs, as Vista doesn't have that capability as far as I know. Tried opening up the drivers sound mixer and looked thoroughly at all options and advanced options of options etc.
