Where's My Sound?

I just completed the reformatting of the hard drive and installation of Windows XP Professional SP2 on a Intel Pentium D computer with the Intel G965 Express Chipset Family. Audio and video are onboard - no installed graphics or sound card - and I have no sound.
When I pull up Device Manager, there is a yellow question mark next to the "Other devices" category. When I click on the + sign, there is a yellow question mark next to "PCI Device". I am not sure if that is consistent with no sound, or if that is something totally different.
After reinstalling Windows XP, I used the Intel Express Installer Driver CD to d/l and install all the drivers, at least I thought that was what would happen.
Any ideas? I am not sure I have provided you with all the information you need to help diagnose the problem. If not, let me know what I need to do and I will track it down.

Thank you,

You need to go to the website of the people who made the board/computer and download the drivers from there. Only then will your sound work once you have the right driver for it.
