Sound gone after windows re-install

Following hard disk failure and windows re-install on new disk, [XP Pro SP3] I can't get sound to work. Have been in device manager, and found yellow question marks at Multimedia Audio Controller, Multimedia controller and Video controller. Have tried re-installing/updating/rolling back drivers, but no joy. Under details I get PCI\VEN_1106&DEV_3059&SUBSYS_B0101462&REV_60_3&13C0B0C5&0&8D. Don't know if this means anything.
When I start iTunes, it gives me error message "iTunes has detected a problem with your audio configuration. Audio/Video playback may not operate properly." Windows media player also produces no sound. Any ideas?

Download the audio drivers from your sound card's manufacturer's site, or if it's onboard sound, check out the motherboard manufacturer's site for the audio drivers. Use SIW click here to identify your motherboard if you don't know it already. Or you could check the computer manufacturer's site for the drivers.

Sorted - Many thanks, MAJ. Your solution did the trick, and I have sound again.
