Wont Load soundcard drivers

Hey guys I just installed Windows 7 Ultimate on my computer last night and I cant get either one of my sound cards installed. My computer orginally came with onboard audio and vista .. I have a Compaq Persario SR5030NX. I also have a older sound card that I was using with vista for the gameport on it for my wheel for games. I looked on the Compaq site and they dont have windows 7 drivers and the vista ones dont work...what should I do? playing games with no sound sucks

Can you type DXDIAG into command promt (Windows Button +R) and post what it says under audio?

No sound card was found. If one is expected, you should install a sound driver provided by the hardware manufacturer.


but in device manager it lists them both with the yellow !

Ok,download and scan your pc with this
Driver Detective - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Download.com

It should tell you what driver you are missing in the reports.Dont buy it,just let it collect the info for you.

After having a look through the site it seems HP use the realteck audio drivers on that system.

Latest Realtek HD Audio Driver Version

Download the above and your problem should be solved.

Strange,it lists realteck on their site.

Have you tried unistalling and reinstalling?

Or forcing the driver in with add legacy hardware and chose from your a list (if you know what it is)
