Go into device manager (type device manager in search) go to the sound tab, and delete the driver. when you re-boot win 7 will find the driver and install it.

Fixed

For other out there that may be having this problem or will have this problem in the future.

Go to Start>Control Panel>Sound>Playback tab, right click an empty area where the devices should appear. Mark "Show Disabled Devices". Right click on disabled bevice and click "Enable"

Sorted
