    Your link clearly shows you have Nvidia HD Audio, not Realtek or Via.
    Are you using Nvidia drivers? If not, that's the problem.

    Download everest and check what device it really is, if you use wrong drivers then the sound card will not work correctly.

    Yeah, it's def a nvidia device. Some of the drivers that worked with XP won;t work on Win 7, so you might have to find a nvidia driver that is modified already. You can try looking on guru3d.com

    Check whether your windows audio service is running when you are not getting any sound.
    On a side note, I had a similar problem with FRAPS on XP. If I shutdown without manually closing fraps first, then upon reboot I wouldnt get any sound. I had to uninstall the device from device manager then scan for new hardware to make it work. Maybe you have a similar problem.
    Also have a look at the event logs as they might show something.
