Problem with sound driver

Hi, I just upgrade my pc from win xp to win 7, and it seems win 7 installed all my drivers automatically but not the sound drivers. I had problems with the sound driver back in the xp days too. My system detect my sound driver as via ac'97 enhanced audio controller all the time but the driver does not work. I downloaded this ( SoundMAX512015150.zip ) and it works fine for my xp. However, windows 7 is not compatible for that driver. So I got no sound.Please help me.

Cheers.
