In my quest to get sound on my computer, I have noticed that everything under my "Other Devices" tab under "Device Manager" has the yellow question marks beside them. I have a "Biometric Coprocessor" "Network Controller" "SM Bus Controller" and a "Unknown Device" tab listed here. Should I be concerned about these? And, if so, is this another driver issue like the sound was? Thanks for your time and here are my specifics.
MS Windows XP Professional 32-bit SP3
Intel Core Duo T2700 @ 2.33GHz 54 °C
Yonah 65nm Technology
2.00 GB Dual-Channel DDR2 @ 332MHz (5-5-5-15)
LENOVO 20088DU (None) 57 °C
Plug and Play Monitor (1400x1050@60Hz)
512MB ATI MOBILITY FireGL V5200 (Lenovo)
98GB Hitachi HTS721010G9SA00 (SATA) 33 °C
HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-4083N
SoundMAX Integrated Digital HD Audio
Solved! Go to Solution.

Install and run system update, it will fix most, if not all of these drivers automatically.

This table might help you.
You also can try to identify the device in the device manager on the "Details" - tab of each device in the "Device instance ID".
If there is an ID like "PCI\VEN_yyyy&DEV_xxxx..." input the "xxxx" in the right imput field on www.pcidatabase.com
In the result list compare the "yyyy" (above) with the VEN-ID and then you have found the device name.
Other/similar "Device instance ID" starting with "USB..." or "ACPI" you will find in the table i've linked above.
The drivers you will find here
