Did you remember to install the sound drivers? From what I can see it has the Realtek audio on it and you can find the latest Windows 7 drivers for it here,

Latest Realtek HD Audio Driver Version

Also don't forget that if the source isn't 5.1, all you will get is stereo without enabling the speaker fill option in the Realtek control panel.
