You probably installed the wrong driver, hence the exclamation mark and why it can't be configured correctly.
If your PC is a brand-name (ie not custom-made or home-built) you need to download drivers for on-board devices from the PC manufacturer's website because they often do not use standard drivers. They have them custom-made to support additional functions of the hardware.

Plus, there are many different versions of "realtek ac97". You can't just install any of them. That's why you must go the PC maker's website. Only they have the correct version.
