I recently installed Windows 7 RC on an Acer Travelmate 3002WTci and I've managed to get everything to work except the audio.

Does anyone know of a Windows 7 compatible driver available for download anywhere?

Do you have Windows Vista drivers already? –  Ivo Flipse Aug 6 '09 at 8:57
Darn according to the Acer site you model is not eligle to upgrade to Windows 7 (acer.com/windows7upgrade/eligible.html) which means I can't find the drivers there –  Ivo Flipse Aug 6 '09 at 9:01
Nope I don't have a vista driver, been running XP on this machine all the while. I tried a few vista drivers off the Dell website, but those didn't work. –  grok Aug 6 '09 at 14:33

You have to find out what model number you audio component has.

Since the Vista (and hopefully 7) driver I found at this link only works for a couple of models:

The Sigmatel AC97 audio driver is for Windows Vista, Windows XP or Windows 2000. Technically, it is the rather long winded: Sigmatel C-Major STAC 9750 AC97 WDM Audio Driver. Whatever way you want to label it, the driver package installs version 5.1 of the driver onto your system and can be used as an update to an earlier driver or as part of a new installation. The driver can be used for the following Sigmatel models: STAC 9200, STAC 9204, STAC 9205, STAC 9220, STAC 9221, STAC 9223, STAC 9227, STAC 9228, STAC 9229, STAC 9230, STAC 9254, STAC 9255, STAC 9271, STAC 9272, STAC 9273, STAC 9274.

I was able to get audio working on a Dell Latitude D600 that uses Sigmatel STAC 9750 AC97 working on Windows 7 32-bit by using the driver provided by Dell here and running the setup in Compatibility mode for Windows Vista Service Pack 2. Hope this helps you.
