Ah yes, the bane of multimedia files and codecs. First thing you need to do is download Gspot. Drop the file into Gspot and identify exactly what the audio codec is. Once you do that, then you can download it. Careful though, you can get viruses or get otherwise currupted/inoperable codecs if you don't get the right ones.
I am guessing you installed the software that came with it. Check in the Device Manager and make sure that the card says working properly with no yellow exclamation marks or question marks. Check the version of driver you are running and make sure you have the latest one from the manufaturers web site. Did you go into the sounds and audio devices in the control panel and verifiy the card is there and select the default playback devices? You may also need to open the mixer and make sure that the sound is not muted and is turned up to an audible level. As for codecs, Windows Media Player should play WAV and mp3 files without any additional codecs. You can always download codecs from Microsoft's media player page. If you need more help or more detailed assistance let me know.
BrendanG21, I had the same problem this morning. My sound actually quit in the middle of listening to music. Simply restart your computer (it may take a couple tries). If it's saying you have no audio device installed, but everything looks normal when you go into device manager, it's probably the same problem and this should work.
