    Install drivers for them. Your video controller is your graphics card, the audio controller a sound card and the other one sounds like a modem/network card.

    Have you not got driver disks for those? Do you know who the manufacturers are?

    check your modem installation disk for the PCI communications drivers.

    If you dont have a modem installation disk, you may have a 'tools & utlities' disk supplied with the computer- this will more than likely have all neccessary drivers.

    Failing that, let windows try and find a suitable driver for the modem.
