Question Realtek Audio?

Hello all,

Yesterday I attempted to upgrade my windows vista 64 bit to windows 7, it went totally wrong and I ended up having to just totally reinstall vista. My specifications are as follows:
Monitor: Samsung Syncmaster P2250
Motherboard: XFX nForce 780i
Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600
Memory: Corsair 4GB Kit
Graphics Card: 9800GT (512MB DDR3)
Sound Card: Not got one.

Anyhow, on my previous version of Vista in my bottom right toolbar there was something called Realtek HD Audio, it was a great help when plugging in and swapping between my headset and speakers. Since the reinstall this HD audio program has not come back, and i have no idea how i can re-attain it. I've updated my motherboard driver but other than that, i'm totally clueless!

Help me get my Realtek Audio Manager back please!!!
Thanks in advance, Jon.

We have the same mobo; you get the audio driver from XFX's website (you need to register the product first).
