Delay with a MIDI-keyboard

I have a MIDI keyboard connected to my joystick port so I can play music in Digital Orchestrator. If I play I can hear sound but there is a small delay (0.5 sec). On my old computer it worked just fine.
My new computer has sound on board (and my old pc had a sound blaster), could that be the problem ?

It may be due to the fact that the on board audio is not a full duplex audio chip. In other words it can't input and output at the same time.

If in fact your intergrated sound chip is a half duplex. I would suggest a full duplex soundcard.
What is the make and model# of the Motherboard?

I believe it's this:
AOpen AK77-333, AMD platform

And this is what the box of the motherboard says about audio onboard:
5.1 channel audio onboard
