Default Problem with Sound/Videocard

Hello guys, i have 2 problems for ye guys

First, my videocard, i run on a dell dimension 3100 and a while ago my pc crashed so i had to update my drivers again etc. when i check what my videocard is it says:
Intel 82915G/GV/910GL Express Chipset Family

now the problem, i use this pc for gaming and a program (WoW Map Viewer) crashes as soon as i see a map, on their forums they say its a problem with OpenGL.. but the problem is.. i dont know how to put this on or fix it, and they dont answer on their forums either.

My second problem is my soundcard, before my pc crashed i used my sound system to play my pc's sound, but now my driver aint installed so it doesnt work anymore, after a bit of pain i found out what my soundcard whas:
Intel 82801FR I/O controller hub (ICH6R)

i looked everywhere for drivers, and then i mean EVERYWHERE:P i tried intel's own update thing but i cant run the program because ''i dont meet the system requirements.'' though i'm quite sure that i do.

PS: dont talk too weird in computer language coz i might not understand anything about it:P
PSS: sorry for my bad english

Have you changed the system at all? Different mother board or anything like that?

That is why. Those drivers are for Vista not XP. So that is why they wont work.

Dell - Search - All Dell.com

XP Specific drivers.

I tried this one for my video card

Drivers and Downloads

but again: ''you dont meet the system requirements''

and i tried this one for my sound card

Drivers and Downloads

i could install that without any problems, but still when i try to play something through my sound system it says; Theres a problem with ur sound system or the software isnt installed. (crappy translation)

and when i run ''dxdiag'' in a cmd it says i have no sound card installed

But thanks so far for your time bud.
