Not sure why you would do that, as from what I can see looking here, Drivers & Downloads
the only driver available for that laptop is a Sigmatel driver. It is for Vista but it should work in Win 7.
P.S. For Jacee, yours is missing the driver as well, and it is the same Sigmatel based audio as salisbury88's. That's why both your screen shots are the same and not showing what the audio device is, only that it is "High Definition Audio Device"; all it is using is whatever default driver was installed by Windows.
The fun part is that Sigmatel (also known as IDT) do not support any of their audio chipsets at the consumer level, it is entirely up to the the motherboard and/or computer manufacturer that used a board with that chipset on it to get the drivers from Sigmatel. There are enough threads here on just this, Windows 7 Forums - Search Results
with quite a few workarounds to get drivers to actually work.
