The motherboard has onboard sound, not a sound card, according to the specifications.

You need the correct drivers from the C-Media website and should also Enable onboard sound in the Bios.

How do I know the correct drivers from the C-Media website there area number of options i.e.

PCI Audio;
Onoard audio;
Multi maedi cardreader
each of thesew has a number of CM options and co on my pc is starting to fill up with zip files.

The driver you have downloaded appears to be the correct one.Have you tried to install it?

Thats where my trouble is now I've clicked all the boxes and folders but nothing seems to install the software

With an Asrock board the audio drivers are on the motherboard disk (if you have this) !

Have you run the motherboard disk ?

If you do not have the mobo disc.

Save the audio driver download to your desktop.
Then goto device manager and uninstall the current driver and install the new driver on your desktop,when asked the location,point the request to your desktop.

Once the downloaded file is unzipped you should just need to double-click 'Setup.exe' to install the driver.

As Eric10 says
Create a new folder on your desktop
Unzip the contents of the downloaded folder
to the new folder.
Open the new folder and double click on the setup icon(setup 32-bitsetup launcher)
