Default Sound Problem

I just finished building my first computer and the on boardsound doesn't seem to work. Thw mobo is a ecs nforce3-a and the sound chip is realtek ac97. I have made sure it is enabled in the bios and installed the drivers for in from the mobo's cd. Does any one know what the problem might be? thanks
