Looks like there were never any Vista drivers for that C-Media chipset that ever got released. The closest I could find were 64bit drivers that were for XP/2003 (file attached - unzip and try install in 2003 compatibility mode)
But honestly, I think your best option will be to look for another PCI sound card

Look at the link I provied at my last post and you will see that in the comments down the bottom off the page it seas,

Windows 7

Microsoft Windows 7 drivers compatibility: 78% (134 votes)

(Users can vote and say if cmi9880 driver is working on their Windows 7 systems.) Linux

Some of drivers are working on Linux OS, for example Ubuntu or Debian. Windows Vista

At this time, almost all drivers are Windows Vista compatible.

Nearly five years later, the package from this link did the trick for me!

The one provided by the user "thefabe"


For resolving the following issue : code 10 for HD Audio device on a ASUS P5AD2-E Premium motherboard

I proceeded this way:
- download the zip file and unzip it to my desktop
- install manually the driver by selecting the INF file in the extracted folder
