The driver that has a question mark with an exclamation mark (?!) indicates that it is not installed. Windows still recognizes that a driver is plugged into the computer but won’t use it because the driver’s system file is either missing or corrupted.

Windows XP does not detect new drivers and therefore new laptops and motherboards comes with a CD/DVD disk that contains the system files for all drivers which are important such as: Sound Driver, Network Adapters and VGA Drivers.
You may want to insert the CD/DVD disk that comes with the motherboard/laptop to install these drivers since this is a new installation of Windows.
