Sound not working in CS:S/HL2 after Vista install?

    First of all here are my computer specs

    AMD Athlon 64 processor
    1 gig of RAM
    Radeon x1600 video card
    Asus K8V-X SE mobo
    SoundMAX Integrated Digital Audio
    running Windows Vista Ultimate

    I wasn't sure which forum to post this in, the Vista forum or the games forum, so sorry for the double post.

    So after installing Vista and getting all my drivers set up I figured I'd try out some games to see how they played. Well, most games are working fine, but neither Half Life 2 or Counterstrike Source have sound, and I really have no idea why. Sound works outside of those games, and it works fine for other games, so I don't know what the problem is. I also haven't been able to find anyone else who is having this problem, so any insight would really be appreciated.

    Windows tells me all sound drivers are up to date, but when I check the ASUS site for audio drivers for my mobo, it doesn't list any drivers for Vista yet. Should I just wait a bit to see if they release a new driver, should I go out and buy a new sound card, or can my problem be solved another way?

    Thanks for the help!

    edit: I found out a way to get by my problem by mistake tonight. If I have some sort of audio running when I open CS, my CS audio works as well, and then i can just turn off Winamp or whatever was playing audio. Kind of weird...not sure why it's doing this.
