See for yourself. Its odd. In the base C: there's a driver file for a NIC with the same icon. I've just always thought it was kind of odd for my HDD to show up with a PCI icon lol. The drive works great does its job just that bit of weirdness.

Check out this nifty freeware utility here: http://www.snapfiles.com/screenshots/IconTweaker.htm

If that doesn't work, see here:

or (last resort):
Boot into Safe Mode and delete the iconcache.db file from your profile directory in C:/Documents and Settings/Username/Local Settings/Application Data (typically located there) and reboot. Your original icon should be restored.
