Are you using a PCI sound card rather than the onboard sound? The onboard is listed as "ADI AD1888; 5.1 channel audio" & IMO, it's much better than "C-Media CMI8738/C3DX Audio".
If you are using a PCI soundcard, did you disable the onboard sound in the BIOS? The drivers for the onboard can be found here:

Windows xp code28 driver not officially signed

Some companies just don't go through the extensive process to get the Microsoft stamp of approval for their device drivers. Usually, the setup instructions for the device you are trying to install will include a heads-up that you must ignore this warning.

I haven't had any problem with a driver "not officially signed" yet. If you are installing from an original disk that came with your hardware device, or from the comany's website, I would just ignore that warning message and install anyway.

Hope this helps,
