Hey guys,

I'm experiencing a strange problem over here. After fixing a lot of stuff, I wondered if my sound worked. I managed to get a .mp4 and .mp3 file on my laptop-HDD and tried to open it on my hackintosh. Unfortunately, it didn't work. iTunes recognized the file, but it doesn't start playing it (at the beginning, there's a message that iTunes can't connect to the server). Quicktime just crashes with an error message (something like "ended inexplicably Code: -1); this happens with both files.

Has this ever occured to anyone too?

So first, do you have sound working or not? Go to System Preferences > Sound, and see if there is an output device. If it's there, then change volume with keyboard keys (not with the slider in the window), it should play a little sound on every volume change.

Nope, there is no output device..

I think got a Realtek ACL269 audio chip; any way to get that one working with ML?

OK, according to this file by Lenovo my notebook uses the ALC3202 audio-chip Document. Couldn't find anything about this chip and osx86 though..

I never even heard about that audio-chip... Try using VoodooHDA. (remember to delete/disable applehda.kext if you're using voodoohda.)

If you look into that pdf you'll see that there are more laptops in that pdf.

Sure didn't, that would have involved way too much looking :)
