    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    AC97 is usually onboard sound.

    If your system is an oem such as Dell/HP etc, then go to your computer manufacturers website and download and install the correct audio drivers for your system.

    If you system is custom built, you will need to go to your mobo(motherboard) manufacturers website for the audio drivers.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    If it is a dell, First find the BIOS drivers from dell. Then find the chipset drivers. Do this in the order described. Now go for the sound card drivers. Good luck:)
