Windows 7: No Audio Output Device Installed...again

No Audio Output Device Installed...again

I know this is probably the onemillionth time this has been posted but I like the personalized service everyone gets so now its my turn.
I just installed windows 7 on my laptop and I am getting the dreaded red x icon and the error message saying there is no audio device, and I cannot for the life of me figure out where to get a driver. After reading some other forums I realized that I also had no clue what I was doing so here is what I found after following some other peoples directions...

device manager>sound, video...>hd audio devices>properties>details>hardware ids:


Can anybody help me, or am I just doomed to have a mute laptop?

What is the actual device listed under...device manager>sound, video...>hd audio devices> ?

That's what your going to have to find a driver for, is the sound device. I assume your using onboard sound, and not a sound card?
