sorry for dumb questions im only 12 yrs old D:
It's never dumb to ask.

Restart the computer and look for a message saying "press (some key, probably Del) to enter the BIOS (or enter setup)".

Once you're in there, use the up and down keys on your keyboard to move around until you find the place to Enable/Disable it. In the picture I've attached (yours will probably look at least a little bit different) it's the line marked "Onboard Audio Function".

For the time being, DON'T mess with anything else in there!

I guess the others missed this one. Does your computer's motherboard have a setup CD?? Its the disc that says something like "motherboard setup".It should come when you bought your PC. When Windows 7 was installed, some of the drivers have to be installed again and to do that, you have to run the motherboard's setup CD because it most likely contains the driver specifically designed for the built-in sound adapter. So if you have a motherboard's setup CD, run it. But whether or not that will work with Windows 7 is a question but better than not getting a compatible driver at all.

I was trying to hunt down a good BIOS picture and hadn't seen the most recent replies.

That would work, but the only hitch would be that it might turn something else off that he needs. Not to mention that he wouldn't know what the settings were before in case he needed to change something back.

Your idea is fine. My main concern would be that for someone who doesn't seem quite at home in the BIOS to begin with it would be a real mess to try and sort out a dozen different changes that one little key press might make. That's why I warned him about not messing around with anything else while checking the audio.

Good point, sorry I forgot about that possibility.

It was still a good suggestion. If he has no luck finding the audio setting it would probably be the next logical step.

The manual can be found here if you want to look through it:
Intel® Desktop Board DG41RQ — Product guides for DG41RQ

It claims that the audio system is composed of:

Intel ICH7
Realtek ALC662 audio codec
