SigmaTEL hd CODEC issues

Hey everyone, I installed Windows 7 ultimate and since I have the forbidden red x over my speaker in the toolbar. I click on it and I get the no audio output installed. If I go to device manager my sound card show up fine. I thought I would try to update the driver to see if that would fix it. Everytime I try to update it searches and finds audio software but when it begins to download an error pops up saying something to the effect of " hardware is not connected to the computer" or something like that. How do I fix this issue and get my sound back??
