The sound card is a Realtek AC97 sound card (which is an extremely common onboard sound card)
you can get drivers here:
If that doesn't work, you might need to install the Microsoft UAA Bus driver first:

i'm guessing its working right so far? what does that mean though?
Okay, open up device manager. If you can still see "Multimedia Audio Controller" with a yellow exclamation mark, it isn't installed.
Right click "Multimedia Audio Controller", click "update driver", then "let me choose which driver to install"
choose any of the categories (it won't matter if it's not the right one), then when the next dialogue comes up, click "have disk"
You'll need to find the folder where the audio drivers are extracted to (one with an .inf file)
