If you can afford $30-40 you can ask your local computer hardware store, not something like BestBuy, if they sell OEM sound cards.
OEM is not a brand. Basicly it's a way of selling hardware without all the extras, like manuals and bonus software. If the case of soundcards, you get the card and a disc or 2 for the drivers and that's all.
I spend about $45 for my SoundBlaster Live! 5.1 instead of the $70-80 for the full package. And that was about 1 year ago.
I got it because the on-board audio was the AC'97 and it sucked. One set of drivers would let me hear all audio fine and use my mic giving me full duplex, but I wouldn't play more than one piece of audio at the some time. Where as other set of drivers, even listed as the be the correct set for the on-board chipset, allowed for multi-audio files to play but some sounded like pure crap and also only allowed for half-duplex if I was lucky.
VIA might make a great chipset for the rest of the mobo, but they suck for everything else, even tech support.

and now my mic does not work at all i cannot record sound or talk or nothing i guess the drivers suck for the onboard i tried rolling them back but i really do not think it works all that great the roll back
so i should go get a new sound card oem type and then will i be plugging my mic into the new sound card??

Uninstall the onboard audio drivers, restart to get at your BIOS and disable the onboard audio there
Then install the new card and it's drivers

I have a Gigabyte 845E M-Board with a counstructed onboard Sound card, so I found out that the sound keeps disappearing. So I just setted-up by good 'ol SB Live.
