Currently Being ModeratedJul 4, 2010 7:27 PM (in response to patrickkidd)I was able to get this to work this weekend. Total PITA reinstall but at least I have sound now.
1)Reinstall Vista 64 Ultimate via Bootcamp
2)Run Bootcamp from the Apple DVD (I still didn't have sound so I decided to just go ahead and run all the Vista updates).
3)Download SP1 from the Microsoft website (I did this b/c Windows update kept failing on me with one of the initial updates on the previous install).
4)After the first reboot I noticed that 'X' was removed from the sound icon.
Not sure if this was a fluke and certainly don't want anyone to do an install to not have it work but it was a new install for me so I didn't have anything to lose.MBP i7 2.66
Currently Being ModeratedJul 28, 2010 4:33 PM (in response to section-31)I plugged in my 24" apple display which includes an internal usb sound card. That worked so my problem is 50% solved since it will work while sitting at the desk. Having sound while working on professional audio applications is kind of a nice thing.Original Macbook, Windows Vista, x64
Currently Being ModeratedAug 8, 2010 6:56 PM (in response to patrickkidd)Windows Update never showed SP1 and SP2 for Vista x64, which are required to get the following driver to work. I manually pointed the hardware wizard to the folder after installing SP2 and everything worked great.
You will have to download the: CS4207WinVista_Win7_32-64-bit6-6001-1-21.zip driver.

Currently Being ModeratedAug 14, 2010 5:14 AM (in response to Tonkasan)You may not have read or checked but Apple does not list XP 64-bit as supported; has never provided drivers for it. A few have on their own but today... with Windows 7 out and ready... go that route instead.Mac Pro 8800GT 10.6.4 /, Windows 7, Core i7 3.2GHz / GTX 260 / 10K VelociRaptors

Currently Being ModeratedAug 31, 2010 9:16 PM (in response to Ujimatcha)First-time Mac user here. Like many, I encountered the issue with no sound in Vista 32-bit after installing with Bootcamp, but somehow managed to fix it using a combination of other suggestions.
The following worked for me:
1) In Device Manager, attempted updating the Cirrus driver with no luck
2) Right clicked, selecting 'Update Driver Software'
3) Clicked 'Browse my Computer for Driver Software'
4) Located the folder of the downloaded driver mentioned on page 1 of this thread ( http://www.cirrus.com/en/products/pro/detail/P1233.html )
5) Clicked 'Next', and waited for the driver to update/install
After this, I was thrilled to have been notified that the installation was successful, and now it appears that sound is working. I have yet to install Service Pack 1 or 2, but I hope that they don't mess anything up. I'll update if anything changes.
An issue I had noticed initially was that when I plugged in earphones or external speakers to the jack, audio would continue to come out the main speakers of the MacBook as well as through the earphones simultaneously. To fix this, I simply:
1) Went to Control Panel
2) Clicked 'Sound'
3) Right clicked 'Headphones' and clicked 'Set as Default Device'
After this, Vista would recognize when I had my earphones plugged in, and when I didn't. The transition between the two isn't always graceful or on the fly (I noticed with YouTube videos that I had to reload the page for the audio to adjust to whichever configuration I was testing).
I'm not sure if it's a foolproof fix, but I'm more than happy to share whatever I can with the community, as it's been surprisingly difficult finding a clear solution to a problem that's apparently so widespread.

Currently Being ModeratedSep 13, 2010 6:43 PM (in response to Tennoku)Yes !!!!! you are the first one to have stated an answer that worked for me (although the link did not directly work, I searched the Driver from that webpage). I did not uninstall the original driver - I DL'd the driver from cirrus and updated from the download. Fixed ! (for having no sound in 32 bit - Vista on my MBP). Thank you for the info.MBP
Currently Being ModeratedOct 1, 2010 8:51 AM (in response to patrickkidd)Hello, i have found a fix for this. You need to go to this website:
Once on this page click "download" where it says download URL. Next you will be prompted to enter a security code, then click download. Choose to save the file to your computer. Now, once the drivers are downloaded, you will need winzip or winrar to unzip the files. After the files are unzipped, go to "Device Manager" on your computer, if you cannot find this, just search it. Next, open up the drop list under "Sound, video, and game contollers". Double click on "Cirrus Logic" and then click on the "Driver" tab at the top, then click on "Update Driver". Next click on "browse computer for driver". Now search for the file that you downloaded and unzipped, then click next. The computer will now begin to install the new drivers and your speakers should start working shortly. Hope this helps if you have not solved this problem yet. By the way, im running Vista x64 on my macbook pro.Macbook Pro 13, Mac OS X (10.6.4)
