On reinstalling my Windows XP x86 and using Windows Update to get everything back uptodate to the present day. I am having serious problems getting my sound drivers to install. I have tried everything under the sun, also tried a few things which i found while roaming the internet (Mainly google searches for the problem).

Here is a snap of what happens when i try to install (Note: This happens with ANY versoon of the driver):

Any help would be MUCH appreciated :) .

You must install the Chipset drivers before the sound driver.

If you have an ATI chipset, there is one additional driver that you need to install because ATI/AMD in their infinite wisdom fails to install automatically, that driver being the SMBus driver. If you have an ATI/AMD chipset, the sound driver will not install until YOU install the SMBus driver.

Intel Chipset here. A link to SMBus driver would be perfect ^^. Intel P965 Express Chipset.

That's kind'a bad when they are the manufacturer, and it's their program that is sending you off looking for a solution.

Here is yet one more Intel page to try..

They claim your chipset is one it will work with (yea, right).
