No Audio Output Device Installed Mssg.

I installed Win 7 RC and it runs fine except for the "No Audio Output Device Installed" mssg. So pretty much I have no sound. I installed the drivers for the sound card, and it recognizes that the drivers there, but that mssg is still there. Any clue how I can fix that?
