Since  upgraded to win 7 on my HP DC7100 the sound no longer works.
SoundMax integrated digital audio is listed in device manager and has no errors.  I've removed an restarted and it redetects the drier but still no sound.  Hp only provide a driver for Vista and i have also tried this and still the same.

Anyone know a work around??

At the bottom right-hand corner, do you see a speaker? If so, what is coming out of it? An X or waves?

you can use the control panel and open the Sound app.  Is the speaker option green on playback tab and using default device?  my DC7800 on Win 7 64bit just lists as High Def Audio Device.  i haven't tested Win 7 on anything lower than DC7700, to ensure compatibility.

can you test with headphones/external speakers, just incase the onboard speaker is dead?  The Vista driver should be enough in a pinch, but alternatively you can use this driver on this page, see if it works for you - http://windows7forums.com/windows-7-support/2861-soundmax-integrated-driver.html

Also try re-installing the device driver, browse for driver, choose 'Let me Pick from a list' and when presented with a list, choose High Definition Audio Device, and reboot.  See of that gets it working for you.
