OK right click on the yellow entry and click uninstall. Then reboot and lets see if it will actually tell you what device it is trying to install.

Several different ways to correct this. The utility is not a needed program so you could just right click on it in device manager and then just disable it.
If your motherboard is a Asus you can do the following according to a resolution I found.

i put the ASUS driver cd
and then ran the "ADD HARDWARE WIZARD"
it searched for the appropriate driver'S and TADA the error was no more..
i guessed it was a motherboard issue.....and googled abt this while the drivers were getting installed and found this page .....the error is not poping anymore ..and there is no "UNKNOWN" device in my device manager list.... .

Then disable it in the Device Manager and see if you have any other issues with that utility.
Let me ask do you have the OS installation disk?

OK that won't help as normally the recovery partition will format the drive and bring everything back to factory.

If you could borrow a OEM version of the same type OS you have...Home, media or Pro then we could attempt a repair installation.

This driver hotfix from Microsoft kb888111 is over a year old and if the sound was working before there should be no issue other then the fact you replaced the main components.
The issue is you replaced the motherboard, CPU and memory correct?

That is correct, up until the change sound was working good then after the change there is a delay in everything, sometimes on reboot it will work fine for a min then go back to the delay

No the motherboard was a ASUS ABAE-LE AMBERINE-M 939 MOTHERBOARD and was changed to a ASUS M4A78LT-M LE

The CPU was an AMD Athlon 4600+ and changed to an AMD Phenom II x2 560 black edition

Memory was 2.5 gb of pc3200 and changed to 4gb of ddr3
