Windows 7 64 bit upgrade then sound doe,s not work tested speackers and connections any ideas

Your mixer: Right-click on the sound icon. Go through the menus--see which sound system currently is configured for use: Is that correct? (It's likely that the onboard sound ports are enabled by default. Thus, you can't get sound through your sound card, instead.)
Another option, perhaps, is HDMI. A video card featuring an HDMI port--or onboard video circuitry featuring an HDMI port--passes through both High-definition video--and, audio! Such config also proves available in the mixer, as well. Again, invoking such circuitry requires making that default (or otherwise usable) in the mixer.
I prefer to make every sound config option visible. Two sets are available in the sound icon mixer (from Windows)--those for "Play" and "Capture" (recording or monitoring). Check every box for each set to make their options visible and perhaps usable.
So, you wish to use your C-Media card!: It's likely then that disabling the onboard sound circuitry and ports may help. Using both proves still perhaps possible. Nonetheless, driver conflict also is possible. Have you checked device driver for driver conflicts and function? (Device Manager in Control Panel.) Any missing drivers, or codes indicating failure?
To disable onboard sound, go through your BIOS menus and find the one which enables onboard sound--click or "Tab"/"Space" to disable. Then, tab or click, navigating to the last menu. Indicate "Yes" in the option that saves your new BIOS configuration and reboots. (A less desirable method is to disable the onboard sound circuitry in Device Manager--found in Control Panel.)
(To get into BIOS config--turn on you or shut down and restart your machine--press the "Delete" key--well before the hard drive and OS boots. A newer BIOS allows mouse navigation and clicking to change config--older ones require the keyboard and use the "Tab" key to navigate. The "Space" key on the bottom of the keyboard allows assent to change an option.)
Check out C-Media's driver config icon program--in Control Panel (perhaps available in the task tray, as well). Is configuration accurate? Testing your speakers here also proves possible--that's very useful as you tinker.
Try upgrading the driver--with a correct download from C-Media's site or directly from right-clicking in Device Manager. (Recently, C-Media set up an easier to use site--one which doesn't require registration and joining.) The driver disk you note can't be updated--it may grant you function initially, anyway, though. (Config likely is similar or the same.)
Alternately for Windows, one may obtain third-party driver update software--online or on a disk. This sometimes proves more accurate than device manager--Microsoft often doesn't care always about noting and downloading the most current drivers. If it works OK and isn't a security risk, it's fine.
Go through each menu--from Microsoft (their sound icon executable), and C-Media Control Panel/Task tray executable--tinker, if necessary, to obtain function and enhanced function....
