Windows 7: No sound with Windows 7 Professional Install

No sound with Windows 7 Professional Install

Hi Guys,

I really need some help. I only installed Windows 7 Professional which was previously Vista Business and now my audio output device is gone. No sound drivers. I installed RealTek drivers but didn't work. I went ahead to install the original C-Media PCI Audio Device for vista. The sound started working but then all other programs (internet explorer, windows media player, adobe 9 professional, windows media center, etc) stopped. Once I uninstalled the PCI driver then they work again.
Please, any suggestions to help me get my sound back without affecting other programs? Thanks

Please, I changed the original sound card from Dell and replaced it with a sound blaster for multi channel player (7 in 1). But I don't know how to get the name of the sound card from Windows 7 since it doesn't even recognize the card. Any ideas? Please, help me I need the sound back. Went to C-Media website but cannot install windows 7 drivers since it required the original sound card for windows 7.

You could try everest home the click on multimedia windows audio tab and see if it appears. But if windows isn't recognizing it Everest might not as well.http://majorgeeks.com/download4181.html Another way is to take it out and get the information off the back sticker if still attached.
