Conexant Sound Driver does not install


I recently updated my windows vista to windows 7 and now I have no sound.
I have no yellow exclamation points under my device manager...I thought I could uninstall/re-install conexant sound drivers from this site Software & Driver Downloads HP Pavilion dv6748us Entertainment Notebook PC | HP® Support

but it will not allow me to install them again. It keeps saying "Driver Instillation Failed:Could not find the device for this driver"I have tried everything...tried to perform a system recovery and it works for a little bit but then the sound driver disappears/ I get a big x on my speaker icon. I tried going into bios mode and disabling it and enabling it again a long with a slew of other things.
