The problem is that you are doing it wrong. Post the manufacturer & model# of the motherboard. Also what version of Windows 7 that you are using (home, pro, ultimate), also if this is the 32-bit or 64-bit version.
Basically what should happen is the following. Windows Device Manager when you open it, will show a Yellow Exclamation mark, on any devices that do not have drivers installed. When you load the disc that came with the motherboard, then right click on the trouble device, you will choose to "Update driver". When you choose to update the driver, you will be asked either to allow Windows to automatically install, or you can install the drivers.
Choose to install the drivers yourself, and point the location when it asks, to the D:\ drive, which should be your DVD drive. If different, you need to choose the correct CD/DVD drive that has the disk that holds the drivers, or a USB Pen drive, if you are using that to hold the files.
When Windows goes to find the drivers, it will then attempt to install them, and one of two things will happen. Either Device Manager will update and the Yellow Exclamation mark will go away, and the device will now work properly with Windows, or the device driver is invalid, so you end up with the device still showing the Yellow exclamation mark.
All the hardware info utility on the disc that came with the motherboard is doing, is making sure that there is no faulty chips or devices attached to the motherboard. It is totally different from what Device manager is. Basically the utility you are looking at, is just for information purposes, and also allows you to load drivers from the disc, to the hard drive.
