Right Click My Computer,Properties\Hardware\Device Manager Button Expand Sound so you can see it all right click\Properties Update Driver Tab let it search the net for drivers

Have you also checked in Device Manager>highlight the C-Media's sound chipset, audio controller>Properties>General tab>Device usage, that it is Enabled?

Also, in Control Panel>Sounds and Audio Devices>Video and Sound tabs, that the C-Media is the Default device?
