Sound Card Problem

I have a Windows XP box which I recently formatted and did a clean install recently. It has an on-board Sound Card which is not working since the installation. I've tried to open the box to get the name of the sound card, but could not locate it anywhere. As a result I can't find the right drivers for it.

Please help me as I don't know what to do to activate it.

If you download and run this utility, it will tell you what kind of sound card you have: http://www.aida32.hu/aida32.php

If it's onboard sound, it will probably be a Realtek AC97 soundcard, but let us know what the program says.

Onboard sound drivers come with the motherboard driver disc.

What brand and model is the motherboard?

Is the sound card showing in device manager as other device?

If not it may be disabled in the bios setup.
