You need some drivers for You hardware. Below You've got something which You need. Download them and install.
SM Bus Controller
Intel 945GM chipset here (Install it first with reboot)
MS-UAA for SP2 (required with a reboot before Audio and Modem) here
MS-UAA for SP3 (required with a reboot before Audio and Modem) here
Audio Device on High Definition Audio Bus:
Conexant High-Definition SmartAudio 221 here
Unzip to a folder..use Device Manager,right click "Audio Device on HD",choose Update driver,
No to connect,
Install from a list or specific location,
Select Don't Search, I will choose the driver to install,
For the Hardware Type select 'Show All Devices'
Remove the check from "Show Compatible Hardware" and click on "Have Disk".
Next...browse to the unzipped folder and choose the "WiSVHe5.inf".
Ignore XP when it complains.

OK so I tried all this and it completely screwed up my screen dimensions. It got really big and every word became blurry. And the sound didn't come on, only some annoying "beep" sound whenever I inappropriately click on something. So, I had to do a system restore point. Thankfully, my screen is back to normal size. Everytime I would download those drivers a message would come up saying "The software you are installing for this hardware: ___________ has not passed Windows Logo teting to verify its compatibility with Windows XP. Continuing your installion of this software may impair or destabilize the correct operation of your system either immediately or in the future. Microsoft strongly recommends that you stop this installation now and contact the hardware vendor for software that has passed Windows Logo testing."
And the other problems that occured was that when I went to Device Manager and under the category Display adapters a yellow exclamation popped up next to Mobile Intel(R)945GM Express Chipset Family. And under Other devices there is still a yellow question mark beside that and underneath that the SM Bus Controller and Unknown Device had yellow question marks.
But now I am back to where I started... Could it be that my problem lies with the system being in Windows XP and not Windows Vista?
