Left speaker keeps going out after sleep mode

Hi, I'm having a problem with my audio. I just installed Windows 7 64 bit. Before I was using 32 bit, so it transferred all my old windows files to a folder called "Windows old". I deleted most of it and transferred the personal files I wanted to keep. Ever since the upgrade my left speaker would make a "pop" sound after I'd wake the computer from sleep mode and it would stop working. So what I've been doing to get the left channel to work is disabling then re-enabling the "Via High Definition Audio" driver. It also works if I reboot the PC. What is causing the left channel to go out after sleep mode? When it's out, it would "pop" once in a while, almost like it's trying to work.

Here are my specs:
Windows 7 64 bit with latest updates
ASUS M4A785TD-V EVO Motherboard
AMD Athlon II x4 620 @ 2.6 (3.1 OC)
4 GB RAM of DDR3 (Upgrading to 8gb tomorrow)
XFX Ati Radeon 5770 (Xfire tomorrow)

Okay, I'm on the download page and It gives me three options for VIA HD audio codecs. How do I determine which one I need?

Thanks it worked ! But the thing is it's only a codec, not a driver, so it wouldn't install unless I had my VIA driver installed. The left speaker still makes a "pop" noise when wakening from sleep mode. It works now though.
