Is the AC97 audio enabled in BIOS?

Have you installed the motherboard (chipset) drivers? Usually motherboards come with a support CD which you need to install. Otherwise, you can go to the website of the motherboard manufacturer and download the necessary drivers.

First steep enable the onboard audio in BIOS.
Second install audio driver from motherboard original CD. If you have not this CD, go to motherboard manufacturer site and download the audio driver installer.

The conflict could be with in the OS and have nothing to do with the hardware at all. I took a look at the data sheet for the codec and the tech and there are possible conflicts with what things you may have installed. First if you have Office 2003 installed do you have the language bar? The language bar has the setup for text to speech like the AC97. that could bring about a conflict. Also I would check your direct X version. I have had that problem before even though my sound was a plug in card.
Are there any other devices hardware wise such as a capture card?
No matter what device manager should tell you where the conflict is rising from.
Could you screen shot the device manager with the conflict so that I could see it?

Thanks
