Check, did you try new PCI sound card in a different slot ?
As you see no other device with yellow exclamation, did you check for any device errors under Sound, Video and Game controllers in Device Manager ?
Did you test the speakers ? try with headsets.
Could be issue with Windows codecs too, run a Windows XP repair install.
I have the same problem. The modem is installed correctly, but my audio does not work.
I have a notebook from Lenovo and it is a built-in soundcard.
It seems the pci simple device-controller is de uaa bus from intel, but i can not find any download for it.
So i would also have the drivers for it.
