Default Problem| Audio doesnt work after Win7 upgrade

Hello
Yesterday I have updraded my XP to WIN 7 and after the upgrade my sound stopped working. I tried to search for drivers online, I tried reinstalling existing driver, I tried disconnecting and reconnecting my device all of it didnt work.
I have a ASUS P5GPL-X Revision 1 motherboard with onboard sound card ADI 1986A High Definition Audio 6 -Channel CODEC S/PDIF out on back I/O port(this is the sound description on ASUS website)

I am very fraustrated with this because I tried to fix this for the past 30 hours for no luck. did somebody encounter this once before? do you have any solutions? please this would help me very much! thank you!

First off download this: Everest Home Edition Free Download

And let us know what it says your audio adapter is.

Did you do windows updates? Usually that has the drivers for audio on computers I've upgraded.

That's very possible. Those things happen. Sometimes other drivers (like Vista drivers) work - sometimes they don't. Might be worth a shot. Otherwise maybe an actual sound card is in order. You can get cheap ones for $10 on newegg. (I've no experience with a sound card as I've never needed one - but I just thought it would be an option)
