    you need to run the original drivers for you board/soundcard. Legacy drivers coming from MS are not working for many cards unfortunately.

    Would be good to provide some info regarding your sound solution. As described i guess it´s an onboard soundchip. As Paul stated, install proper drivers for it. Nvidia HD Audio normally is installed by Nvidia Forceware Drivers. For me (GTX 570) there are 4 entries for these in Device Manager, but the important one is Realtek Audio Driver, i had to install seperately.
