For your computer to play sound, you need to have a sound card installed. To operate properly, the sound card requires that you also have the correct audio driver installed. The driver tells Windows how to use the sound card. Realtek produces audio drivers for many different sound cards. If you have a sound card that needs the Realtek AC'97 driver, you can install the driver manually.
