Windows 7: No audio devices and no USB drivers

Windows 7
No audio devices and no USB drivers


Since I've installed Windows 7, I encountered 2 problems:
1. My computer doesnt seem to find any audio devices. If I try to install the audio drivers for my motherboard for vista, it says it cant install because there are no audio devices found whatsoever. I've tried installing a bunch of different drivers, but nothing seems te work. How do i resolve this?

2. My computers standard USB drivers just do NOT work. It recognises the usb ports in device manager, but it says it cant initialise the drivers for it. I have a dutch Windows 7, but its recognisable still in english:
I've tried removing the usb ports and find them again, but then my PC finds them and still has the same problem.
How do I get the usb ports to work?

My motherboard is Asus M2N-E SLI

I've tried them, but there is no official Windows 7 support by Asus.
When I try to install the Vista c-media audio drivers, it says that it cant install because there are no audio devices. Windows just cant find my audio device.
