The problem is purely that there is no driver that works properly with this device for bit Windows, so it’s entirely a guest issue. Anyway, I’ve converted all my PCs now to Windows 7 host. Problem is the left speaker is either quieter than the right or completely off. I cannot believe that CNET, of all companies, allowed spyware to be downloaded onto my computer along with this driver. CONS No user interface.

There’s no such device reported in the Devices control panel anyway. It may explain why this audio device is no longer supported by Intel, Microsoft, or the OEM manufacturers that included it.
The only important thing here is that this is an unsupported device, and you cannot expect that it will work today or even less tomorrow. Bug is related to this one. We did a similar thing for VBox 1. Or say which is the manufacturer and version, as reported in your installed device? I tried with and without the guest additions and I also tried SoundBlaster 16 with and without the guest additions.
The host audio is HDA on this system. Windows 7 bit seems to be able to download a driver from Windows Update that works fine only tested the RC version. HDA either wasn’t there back then or rather unsupported. Every possible Con you could come up with is in this download.

Another cause of problem is the possible lack of implementation in the VirtualBox host of the audio data format coming from the guest: Implementing a virtual HDA controller is likely the way for the VBox guys to go long term it’s supposed on modern Windows and Linux versions without manufacturer-specific drivers but that’s a non-trivial endeavor.
HDA is a matter between the driver and the hardware, Windows doesn’t care which interface it uses aside from what audio features the device claims to support. The problem is purely that there is no driver that works properly with this device for bit Windows, so it’s entirely a guest issue. I recommend to ask Realtek to add those drivers to VBox Guest Additions until we have better solution.

Hello everyone, today I purchased Windows 7 with the hopes that installation would be smooth and quick Thanks for your help Satish. It sounds like the VirtualBox guys should do one of: After closing all my windows I had noticed Directsund had downloaded two other game software programs and some other thing I didn’t know what dieectsound was.
Many flat screens are sold with a few “acceptable” dead pixels for the same reason, otherwise the production would not suffice to the demand, and the devices would be much more expensive; Intel, AMD, and nVidia are doing the same with their CPU and GPU processors and chipsets, by recycling and downgrading them when they can’t fully reach the expected zero-default dieectsound for which they were initially built: June 5th, 1.
