    In device manager, delete the sound device with the warning icon next to it and reboot. It should then plug-n-play your soundcard drivers. YOu 'may' need your mobo disk to reinstall the full soundmax prog as well.

    google for 'soundmax', you'll get loads of hits for it. Download the software relevent to the onboard sound card on your motherboard. Should be as simple as that really.
