Use a tool like Everest Ultimate edition or SISOFT SANDRA lite to find out what audio hardware you have. (your manual says "Audio: Type AC97, Sound Blaster emulation", you need to know what sound chip). Then start googling to see IF there is a driver for it.

You can also look and see if you have a free slot in the PC. Your PC comes with one PCI slot and one PCIe x 16 slot. If either slot is free you can buy an aftermarket sound card that works with win7 and install. (you need low profile cards with that small form factor PC. Wikipedia has pictures of PCI slots and PCIe slots if you are not sure what to look for) Here is a PCI low profile card for $15 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
