G'day Duckie_92, and :welcome: to BC.

Right click on the 'yellow triangled items" and select "update device driver". Then reboot if prompted to do so.

 

Windows should install the drivers for you.

Okay to understand my problem more i had to reinstall windows nd all my drivers got deleted. So if i right click on a driver it wont let me do anything. What happened was my computer would shut off randomly like the battery died but then it told me to put a recovery disc which i made one nd restarted my whole computer some how nd now its on Windows xxp when it says windows 7 pack 1 nd i got it to sorta look like how its suppose too nd got a few drivers bck that are missing frm HP website. Also when i check the drivers im missing Ethernet Controller, Network Controller, PCI Device, PCI Simple Communications Controller, SM Bus Controller and Unknown Device. When i try and fix them it says for the Ethernet one " The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28) There is no driver selected for the device information set or element."
