Sound Driver

I have hp dv5050ea with AMD Turion-64 ML 32 laptop.
I upgraded the OS from XP to Win 7. After the installation the onboard sound card which I believe is Realtec AC'97 has never worked. I have tried the manufacturers website and numerous recommendations of various drivers nothing I have tried has worked. Its giving me sleepless nights can anyone help me? pleasee....

  1. Is the Sound card showing in the Device Manager as installed under Sound Devices or Other Devices?

    Have you checked the settings in the Control Panel under Sound?
  2. The source of the problem is the sound drivers built into the OS. They were bad drivers provided by the chip manufactures back in Vista Beta and they have never been fixed.
