Device Manager is telling you that you have an AC97 audio device without drivers.

You will need to install driver for your specific audio adapter. Drivers for integrated audio should be available from PC manufacturer's web site or, if custom PC, from motherboard manufacturer's web site. Add on audio adapter drivers are available from card manufacturer's web site.

The AC97 CODEC alone is of no use, you need the audio driver.
