motherboard sound but i don't know if it's ac97 or something else

Realtek produces AC97 onboard sound chipsets amongst other products.

It claims to have gained 65 per cent of the world market share for audio codecs in 2005.

You need to discover the actual Realtek chipset model involved for your laptop (my MSI KT6V motherboard, for instance, uses the ALC650/655).

Medion doesn't actually make laptops (or anything else), it's a rebadger and distributor of the products it offers. Amongst those who have produced models for it are Mitac and Asus.

If you go to Start>Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Information>highlight System, your motherboard and model should be listed alongside System Manufacturer and System Model.

Looking up the board's specifications should indicate which Realtek onboard chipset is involved - you can then download it from the Realtek website (see Devil Fish's link above, which is the same page as I use, although you might just have to look elsewhere on the site).
