    I also had the same exact problem:

    "? PCI Multimedia audio controller," in device manager w/ error code28 ( on a Dimension 4700, WinXP pro).

    I noticed that my system had both: a built in integrated audio adapter AND also a SoundBlaster Live24 PCI card installed.

    solution:

    I had verified SB Live24 adapter card drivers were installed correctly (if needed, un-install / re-install).

    I verified that in the (bios) setup (F2), the "integrated audio" was "off" (disabled), and found it was "on" (enabled) - I disabled it.

    then after booting -no more yellow question marks. I have sound now.
