Before formating, the sound driver was Via AC97 enhanced audio driver. After formating, I cant install back the driver even try downloading it from the internet. It did not work

It might be because, your computer shows your Audio Card as a " unknown device ".

First of all, install the chipset driver.

Then install the audio driver, and it should work.

Also make sure you select the right version of Windows
