How is anyone supposed to help if you don't state the make/model of the new board?

"ac 97" is the Audio Codec standard that was developed by Intel in 1997, it's not the chip itself. The chip used on your board is in compliance with the AC'97 standard.

Your board is an MSI 865GVM3-V which uses the Realtek ALC655 audio chip. Either of the following drivers should work, the ones from the Realtek site are newer:

Out of curiousity, why did you switch to this board? It's not very modern.

Did the sound work OK on your friend's computer? Are you sure the speakers work & are connected to the right audio-out port? Did you try headphones? Did you connect the sound to the front audio-out ports on the case?

I just found this in your motherboard manual, do you have a copy?

MSI Reminds You...
If you do not want to connect to the front audio header, pins 5 & 6, 9 & 10 have to be jumpered in order to have signal output directed to the rear audio ports. Otherwise, the Line-Out connector on the back panel will not function.

sorry i got late , i changed the board because my board was much older than this 1. i dont know that the sound was ok or not but the speakers are connected well and i even tried headphone and it didnt work :( Ya i would have connected in front but it is already not working ( not even in older 1) . i read the pdf online , NO help!!
Ok it seems that my onboard card is not working. How do i repair it? I even opened the CPU and found that the slots are covered with a metal box. I know the last option , installing a new sound card, which my brother wont allow.Thanx mickliq for your help.Thanks alot. 1 more thing , i searched on net and found USB speaker , do they work , but i dont think so they are avaible here .
