    This could be LOTS of different problems ...



    Need to provide more info before anyone can help you, such as:

    1) Was this an upgrade install or a clean install?

    2) What's the make and model of the laptop?

    3) Did you check with the laptop manufacturer to confirm that the laptop is either (1) Vista capable, or (2) Vista premium capable?

    4) What sound chip is used on the motherboard of the laptop? Sometimes, the chip vendors provide their own drivers (i.e., C-media, RealTek)



    There's more needed than this, but this info is a start.

    Hate to suggest the obvious ... but ... have you checked the Seanix support site for driver downloads? I just did that, and while I didn't see any Vista drivers, I did see LOTS of XP driver downloads. Appears that all you need to know is your laptop model number.



    Suggest you download the XP "soundcard" drivers for your notebook and install them under Vista. While there's no guarantee, they might work under Vista.



    If there are no Seanix drivers posted, then you'll have to use Everest to determine your sound chip and hunt for third-party drivers.
