Whenever Windows 7 boots up, the speakers have the red X on them, and don't work.I have to reinsert the cable everytime.

This only happens on Windows 7 though, nothing on XP and Linux.

If it's on the icon, it's probably just muted. Try turning your system volume up. Dunno much about Windows 7, though.

So if you re-insert the cable it fixes the problem...but without doing that it doesnt work?

If so, that's pretty strange. try reinstall your sound drivers, not much else I can recommend.

Maybe these links will help. It's the same problem you have, the red x, and there's a few solutions posted by users there. Might help?

The audio definitely doesn't work? Have you tried playing different video types like mpeg, WMV, etc, to see if they work? Or is there just no sound?

i had a quick look through those, most are saying to reinstall the driver. but some people said not even that helps them, and it's just a issue with windows 7.

what you could do, is make a batch file that runs on startup (put it in the startup folder), and it stops and starts the windows audio service, like this.

echo off
net stop audiosrv
net start audiosrv
exit
