yea i think it has to do with the motherboard driver i didnt think that will effect it and i was going to go online and download the program but i guess it did i couldnt install the drivers because im preatty sure my motherboard didnt come with the disk, it came with 2 disks only 1 is for extra features like raid java and some other crap it says on the disk its optional but the disks name says drivers and utillities but if i try to put it in it say there is some hardware thats not installed so i assume its not the installation disk for the driver there also was a floppy disk i put it and run some program on it and it says its an unstillation to the software so what do you think i should do?

check device manager for any unistalled drivers, indicated by question marks.
