There are two variations of that driver, AC97 or AC97 HD, both are available from the Realtek website.
Post your results here or any error messages you may receive during install of those drivers so that I may follow up with you if necessary. You may also want to provide additional details such as the make and model of your machine or the type of motherboard so I can verify the exact audio chipset.
You download the AC97 codecs from Realtek and retry your install. You have a choice of two - standard AC97 (try this first) or AC97 HD, both are available from the same link and one or the other should be compatible with your device.
Post your results here, especially if this doesn't fix your problem.
