Now....I checked the bios but found nothing about the realtek or multimedia or sound or anything like that. Where would I get the motherboard chipset drivers? I will do a search but don't really know what I am looking for...lol.

In most systems there is an entry in the BIOS, to allow disabling it if an external sound card is used. It may be labeled "legacy audio". But, if there is none in your BIOS then it's always enabled.

The PC vendor should have Chipset Drivers, either listed as Intel Chipset Drivers or Motherboard Chipset Drivers. One of the main thing the chipset drivers do is define all the hardware devices on the motherboard, which includes the sound module (chip). You could also do a web search for "Mobile Intel(R) 965 Express Chipset" I found THIS at Intel, go through the instructions to verify it is for your system and then download and install it.
