Windows 7: XP->7 Upgrade. No Audio

XP->7 Upgrade. No Audio [Solved]

I just upgraded to Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit from Windows XP Professional SP3. I've got most of my devices (printer, scanner, etc.) to work but alas no sound.
I installed Speccy and found that I have a "High Definition Audio Device" soundcard, which lead me to install the version of Realtek High Definition Audio Driver.
However that hasn't solved the problem. Thanks for any help in advance.

Your on-board soundcard isn't a realtek according to Asus.
It's a "Azalia ADI1986A, 6 -Channel High-Definition Audio CODEC "
ASUSTeK Computer Inc.

See the download section, choose Vista x86 in the list. Vista drivers are compatible with Windows 7. Click on Audio and download your driver there.

Ahh. I searched "High Definition Audio Device" and the Realtek driver came up first.
Thanks a lot, works fine now. I would never have realized/found the Asus driver page. Thanks!
