System won't install any PCI device drivers. Help!

I recently purchased a new motherboard due to a hardware fault with my old one which caused bluescreens. This new Biostar motherboard has been great. Until I tried to install my Firewire card. I put the card in and windows detects it, no problem but I am unable to get the driver installed. I had this card working with my old motherboard and it automatically installed because Windows has a native firewire driver. This time the card is getting detected everytime windows starts but is always unable to load the driver. If I look in device manager I have the yellow ! next to the card and no matter what I do the driver will not install.
Since this is the only PCI device in the system I decided to see if the PCI sound card from my old system would work. I have the exact same problem with the sound card. Drivers will not take.

I am running Windows 2000 SP4 with all the hotfixes.

Biostar Motherboard
Athlon XP 1900 processor

Has anyone seen anything like this?

Have you installed the motherboard's drivers that should have come with it on a CD?

Yes, it's the Nvidia chipset. Last night I installed the lateset drivers off Nvidia's website.
