Windows 7: Windows 7 Professional Soundmax Card no Audio?

Windows 7 Professional Soundmax Card no Audio?

Hey everyone.

I've been working on this for about 6 hours. I installed Windows 7 yesterday, from XP, and I did a clean install.

I have no sound. It says I don't have any audio device installed...

I have a built in SoundMax driver on my Asus P5SD2-X driver.

Here's a list of the sound drivers I've tried to install (from the Temp file). (The one that seemed to work on the Beta) (The HP one)

The major one that people suggest, the HP one isn't compatible with 7 (when I try to install it). *Update* I tried it in compatibility mode, XP and it got to 100% install and an error came up that reads, "Driver not found! Reboot your system, and run this set up again."

The x64 vista one, doesn't work because it says that smwdm.sys isn't in a specific file location. I downloaded the file and put it where it said it was missing, and it still doesn't work.

I've tried the Intel Chipset Device Installer and it says my hardware isn't good enough.

I'm kinda at wits end.

Anyone Have anything that can help?

I'll be on here still trying to troubleshoot it.
