If you have on-board sound (AC97), you should check in the BIOS that it has not been disabled.

On start-up hold down Del on the keyboard. This will take you to the BIOS Main Menu - on the first window take time to read the very clear instructions as to how to navigate through the BIOS. Then navigate your way to Peripherals where you should see AC97 mentioned, make sure that it is set at Enabled. Then press F10 to save the settings and exit the BIOS.
