The "Legacy Audio" driver is installed automatically by Windows but it isn't the driver for the sound card.

Is there anything showing in device manager with a yellow explanation mark next to it, usually labelled Unknown device?

You could try running Everest and see if that can tell you what make/model of sound card it is.
