Try installing your Chipset Drivers first ( if not already done so as these are needed to correctly allow the OS to install the drivers especially for USB and Audio )

All drivers and including Chipset are here for your model PC

Once installed the Chipset, re-install the Audio drivers.

Try running Unknown Devices. It can at least tell you the maker of the chipset for the mystery PCI device. Many times, these devices are modems....
Unknown Devices
You may need the UAA software from Microsoft (Universal Audio Architecture) which can be freakin' nightmare to locate... here's the link:
Or from here:
(it's a universal driver, thus the "Universal" in the name, so don't worry too much about it saying it's for this or that model of laptop/PC)

I have foundout what it is thanks to everest I got from this forum. I now know its an intel 82801GB ICH7 - high def audio controller and the other one missing is a video controller (VGA compatible) so armed with your weapons I will go into battle! I have tried to install these drivers but maybe the UAA drivers will work,thanx.
