Go here Realtek and download & install AC'97 Audio Codecs (Software). If they don't work, download & install High Definition Audio Codecs (Software) instead.

They won't work. If you had clicked the link to that card it quite clearly says that it has the C-Media CMI8738 chip on it, not Realtek.

In all likelihood you're probably asking a lot from a sound card that was first made somewhere close to ten years ago, and at best has limited (if any) Windows 7 support. Looking at what passes for the Tech-Com download page, they don't even have Vista drivers for that card.

C-Media did release a Vista driver and a beta driver for Windows 7 for it,

C-Media Electronics, Inc.

Unfortunately you need an account at C-Media to download them, and not having much luck finding them elsewhere.
