yellow question marks in device manager

Hi.
I recently re-installed XP SP2 after a crash.
In device manager under "Other devices" there are (4)items that have a
yellow question mark.
"Multimedia Controller"
"PCI Simple Communications Controller"
"PCI Simple Communications Controller"
"SM Bus Controller"
(driver unknown, no date, no version, not digitally signed under properties
on all (4) drivers) When I try to update the drivers, (all 4) items get the
same results. XP Hardware Update Wizard says: "Cannot Install this Hardware"
"The hardware was not installed because the wizard cannot find the necessary
software" I tried getting drivers from Intel with no luck, the chipset
installed is Intel G965 Express
Thanks.

Oldmanlat,

I get these alot, when i build computers. Most often they are your
motherboard chipset drivers. Go to the maker of your computer (ie:Dell, HP)
and check out the downloads they have available for your paticular model and
just start going though them. The multimida controller is your audio drivers
missing.

If you built the PC your self, you can go to the manufacturer of your MB to
get the drivers that way.

I hope this helps you

Brendan

yeah,

whenever the o.s. is reinstalled
additional files and drivers also
have to be reinstalled from the
computers homesite.

Then you searched incorrectly as Intel has drivers for it's mobo's.

The only thing is that they are typically in a self-extracting and
installing executable..
but once you run it (there may be several you need), your drivers will be
installed

What was causing the original crash before you reinstalled?
