This series of Foxconn motherboards uses the SIS chipset. Onboard sound is through a Realtek ALC635 (AC'97) chip. The motherboard should have come with a driver CD for the chipset as well as the integrated sound card. If you don't have the CD available, you can always go to Foxconn's website and download the drivers you need.

Check your hardware listing and make sure there are NO sound devices listed. If there are any, delete them. Check in "Add/Remove Programs" to make sure there aren't any drivers/applications loaded for the soundcard. If there are any delete them.

Reboot your system, install your driver(s), with AC'97 it should ask for a restart.
Check for sound.

Let us know how it goes. Good Luck
