    First of all, AC97 is not a sound card. its an audio codec. If you look in the manual that came with your computer, its probally stating wich sound card you got. Look there, and post it here.

    Well, google.com/linux does also help a bit. maybe a bit faster than some forums too?

    Good luck

    Run a sound detect. $ soundcfg
