Upgraded from Vista to Win 7 Ultimate (NO SOUND!)

I upgraded from Vista to Win 7 32 bit on my HP dv9000 series laptop.At first my sound was fine.Then I was doing the updates and there was an optional update for my Conexant High-Definition Audio Driver audio. driver.I regrettably chose to do the optional and now my audio doesn't work whatsoever.In system devices it says my audio card is working, but when I go to the sound in control panel it says no audio device is installed.

I've tried going to the manufacturers website and downloading the original Software & Driver Downloads HP Pavilion dv9627cl Notebook PC - HP Customer Care (United States - English) and still the same story.I also have Driver Genius and tried the audio driver there and still no luck.

ALSO, I don't know if its related, but I have 2 base system devices not installed since the upgrade and I can't find them with Driver Genius. Does Anyone Have Any Ideas?!
