    check bios see if ac-97 is disabled there,

    may have deleted audio drivers and may need to reinstall windows but I doubt that and that should only ever be a last resort.

    go on the net and google ac-97 drivers
    get drivers
    go to control panel, add new hardware -> manually select device -> audio video sound controllers -> manually select drivers -> point to your drivers

    cross fingers.
