I have just upgraded from XP to Windows 7 and the device manager does not list any Audio Device nor is there a section for "Sound, Video and Game Controllers"

My motherboard is a Foxconn P4M9007MB-8RS2H and have downloaded both the foxconn Utility and the separate Audio Drivers.

Upon installation of the Realtek Driver Package from both Realtek and Foxconn the Audio Device is not listed.

I have tried manually installing the device driver in Legacy mode (selecting the drivers from the foxconn.zip) but Windows device manager complains of driver error.

I have tried removing all Audio Device Drivers from system32 folder and manually installing all the drivers listed in the foxconn.zip to no avail.

Help!

Have you verified that your audio device is enabled in the BIOS? Make sure it is set to enabled (and not auto, if available, or disabled).
