I have recently Installed Windows 7 to my Lenovo 3000 N100 Type- 0768, 6XG. Everything works perfectly accept for the sound. I have tried to install different audio drivers to see if anything works. I have also been on other forums to see if this is a common problem. It seems that some people get their sound working and others don't.
Does anyone know what sound driver I should be using?
Could there be another problem which I don't see?
Is the best bet for me to restore my computer to factory settings!?
Please help me.

I have had Win 7 working fine on two different N100s.
Sound can be a problem, if you do not know which
sound chip yours has. Only Vista drivers are available,
but they should work.
Here is the driver matrix, and the two sound drivers
are Soundmax and Realtek.
I am guessing Soundmax. But, just a guess.
Un-install any sound drivers you have installed (if possible)
and download the driver package.
When you "run" the downloaded *.exe package, it will extract
to a folder, usually C:\drivers\audio or similar.
You must then run the Setup program from that location.
Temporarily disable any antivirus program.
Right click it and choose "Run as Administrator".
If it still does not install, you can change the Compatibility
mode to Vista. Right click, choose Properties, Compatibility.
If still no joy, uninstall it if possible, and try the other.
