well, i opened my case today to clean it (i did it gently) i didnt remove anything and i didnt even touch the CPU. i started my comp back up and now it seems like my CPU isnt working. i went to start cod4 and i got a Directx9 error. i tried other games too so its not just that. i then checked dxdiag and this is what showed up. (the first page was accurate, and even told me my processor type/name)

is it my CPU? my drivers? possibly just directx9?

any help is appreciated.

Yes, you need the network driver. To find out what the unknown driver is:

Right click on the device with the ? and select Properties, then click on the Details tab, then on Hardware ID in the drop-down box.You should see a hardware ID that looks like this: "PCI\VEN_4444&DEV_0016&SUBSYS_40090070&REV_01"

The 4 characters after the first _ are the Vendor ID and the 4 characters after the second _ are the Device ID. Go to this website ( http://www.pcidatabase.com/ ) and enter the Vendor ID and the Device ID and it will tell you what the device is. Then you can do an internet search for the drivers you need.
