Either you installed the incorrect driver or your driver is corrupted. Did you double-check to make sure you downloaded the correct driver? Here is a direct link where you will find the D915PGN. Make sure you choose XP Professional or XP Home.

Have you attempted deleting the sound device from the device manager, restarting, and then attempting to reinstall the proper drivers?  This has worked for me in the past when dealing with a similar issue.

@question the patch you recommended is for sp1 and below I got sp2

@question the second patch you suggested is not even signed...neither by MS nor by Intel...normally these packages come signed from the Vendor..did you use these packages before  ? Are you sure they are not malicious

It is not malicious. Its from the motherboard manufacturer:Gigabyte(as the link says) and the file is from the realtek corp.
The reason why you have an exclamation mark on driver is because windows does not detect high definition Audio bus out of the box and this is a patch to facilitate this. However this patch is not needed on vista.
  I suggest you install it as i have been using this for over 2 years now and since its from the motherboard manufacturer himself.
Attached is the screen shot of my Dev mgr :)
Let me know how it goes.

Well..There appears to be a new version of driver that was released on march that included the High Def package i pointed out earlier.

Download the one below under audio:
Realtek Function driver for Realtek Azalia audio chip (Including Microsoft UAA Driver in English edition)

http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Support/Motherboard/Driver_Model.aspx?ProductID=2287&ost=xp#anchor_os

Check if thats signed.
