Thank you for downloading SoundMAX Integrated Digital Audio from Download.com
I think they're just testing you hah

Tried that guy and got a install failed error: "The audio driver files do not support your computer hardware. Note: If you uninstalled audio software without restarting your PC, restart now, then run this setup again."

I restarted, tried it again and got the same result.

edit: I plugged headphones in the audio jack and sound comes through them but still nothing through the laptop speakers..

Well I am starting to think it's the switch in the audio jack, maybe it has worn out. It's really dirty back there and at one point this laptop sat in a storage unit for a year. And it has seen little use since then (2007). I think I'm lucky the thing still works at all :P

Unless anyone else has any ideas I guess I'm calling it a day!
