Hi, I just recently had my computer infected by a huge virus and had to wipe everything to be back to normal, so I reinstalled my previous OS (XP) and then upgraded to Windows 7. When I finally got everything installed, I noticed one driver didn't succeed, and that was the audio driver. I'm using an ASUS K8V-MX motherboard, and the soundmax drivers that I use no longer work. Neither does the driver that Windows Update seems to want to do. I'm not sure what to do, I'm half-tempted to buy a cheap sound card to get it to work, but I really want to avoid that as I am low on money. I do know that the sound worked on XP with the reinstall, I managed to watch a few video clips and some sound files then, but Win 7 is letting me do nothing. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

This board isn't listed by Asus as being supported under Windows 7 with any devices (no driver support) so if it's never worked with sound under Windows 7 before you wiped it, it's still not going to work. Has it ever worked under Win7, your sound?

No, just under XP so far, I see multiple topics about how people upgraded to 7 and theirs didn't work, but found a way to getting it to. I've tried their methods, and nothing works out for me. I'm tempted to buy a sound card just to solve everything. Do you think this'll work? http://www.newegg.co...N82E16829126005

Considering the first user review says "Wanted a cheap solution to replace onboard sound. Couldn't get this card to work in Windows 7 32 bit", I'd say no.
