Advanced PC users may be able to update Windows drivers manually by searching for the correct version at the ensuring that it matches the device type and exact model, downloading and installing it. However, this process takes time and carries the risk of getting an incorrect driver version or downloading an unofficial driver, which may be bundled with spyware or viruses. Because of these risks, novice users are recommended to use TweakBit Driver Updater, a special software that checks for outdated or missing drivers, downloads the latest official versions released by the device manufacturer and automatically updates the drivers without requiring the user to make any complicated decisions.

That interesting that the driver didn't work for you and it worked fine for me on both of my PC's. Try manually installing the audio driver as follows.

The nvidia HD audio controls the audio out of the HDMI port on the video card. Here's what happened, and here's what you need to do to correct the problem. When you installed the nvidia video card with HDMI, the PC not only disabled the onboard video, it also disabled the onboard audio thinking that you also installed an audio card. So, to get the onboard audio working again, restart the PC, tap the F10 key to get into the BIOS setup menu. Go over to the advanced settings tab> device options menu.
Find the onboard audio setting. It will be set to disabled. Change the setting to enabled. Save the setting there and again when you exit the BIOS. Upon restart and into Windows, you should have the onboard sound working again.
Then try installing the W7 soundmax audio driver again. You need this driver for the PCI serial port.
