Well isn't that nice. Asus lists it as Realtek HD and has drivers for it, and yet the IDs show it to be Soundmax. Now with that said using the IDs it looks like it is the Soundmax 1888 audio, which from what I can find at the moment there is not now and probably never will be a Windows 7 (or Vista for that matter) driver for it.

I did manage to find this Asus board,

http://www.asus.gr/product.aspx?P_ID...ntent=download

that has the same Soundmax audio on it, as well as a driver for it. I downloaded and checked the INF in it and it does have the same IDs as what crowO7 is showing in those screen shots. Short of getting a sound card that has Windows 7 support you can try it with the last XP driver from the above Asus link. Make sure to uninstall all the Realtek drivers first before installing.

It may also take compatibility mode,

Compatibility Mode

or manually installing the driver,

Driver Install - Device Manager

to get it to install.

our teacher taught that to us during one of his lectures. sadly there are no soundmax drivers in the internet which is compatible for my motherboard...as i recall, i can also use the HD Audio driver for my motherboard because before i reformatted my PC its driver was from the ASUSTek site and it is HD Audio Driver..

I am fond of manually installing drivers, but for this problem it always shows that there is no present software in the source folder i specified. .i've also tried compatibility mode but it did not solve my problem...so as of now i still don't have a working sound driver

Hi crow.. i just want to help...

according to your Hardware ID (PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_24D5&SUBSYS_24D58086) in the picture, maybe your audio driver is:

Code:
"CMICHX.INF"

C-Media 9738 AC/97 Codec
%CMI9738.DeviceDesc%=AC97, PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_24D5&SUBSYS_24D58086
I found the driver in here: C-media CMI9739 Audio Driver UDA 039 or C-Media CMI973x/9761A Audio Driver (click on "Sound" section to download)

but i don't know if the driver is compatible with Win7..

How about the C-media drivers in this thread ..

The two previous driver version above:

UDA039_WDM.zip
DriverVer=11/04/2003,5.12.01.0039

cmedia973x.zip
DriverVer=08/26/2004,5.12.01.0046

version of the drivers mentioned by PeterBoard:

UDA051_build01_Logo51.3_Standard_.rar
DriverVer=06/22/2006,5.12.01.0051

"oem3.inf"
CMI97_5.12.01.0051.zip
DriverVer=06/22/2006,5.12.01.0051

Note: all versions of drivers have the same Hardware ID:
PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_24D5&SUBSYS_24D58086

Strange thing.. when i look up your mobo specifications,
i'ts say your audio is "High Definition Audio, Realtek ALC662 6 -Channel CODEC"
then the Hardware ID should be like this for example:

HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_XXXX&SUBSYS_XXXXXXXX

(X: numbers & letters)

but according to your Hardware ID in Device Manager on the picture before is
"PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_24D5&SUBSYS_24D58086" = C-Media CMI9738 AC97.

If you're still stuck, maybe you should go back to Windows XP & see Hardware ID once again to ensure that the Hardware ID is the same as in Windows 7 ..
if not, then I don't know what causes it ..

Based on what toshikijima posted above and with what Windows is now identifying it as, I would go with one of the C-media drivers that he linked too.
