Hey, I went to this website, (which i find extremely useful), and it says I'm lacking a driver.

I searched around a bit and cant seem to find it.

I still have all my CD's that came with all my designated computer parts, would it be on one of those cd's?

I'm not exactly sure what the driver is for, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

When you go to Device Manger, is there any yellow marks next to anything?

No they arn't.

But the site seemed to detect newer drivers for some of the other devices, and when I eventually found them, they were in fact newer then the ones I had.

Edit: And the newer drivers did not have exclamation marks beside them in device manager prior to getting them.

It's a part like this right?

So, the driver is old but you want a newer one. Do you have the manufacturer details of the part?
Any CD's?

I have a feeling it was built into my motherboard or videocard...? because I didn't install anything like that into it.

I dont know what it is exactly... I installed all the drivers that came on the CD's from my motherboard and videocard.

It allows for extra IDE devicves to be installed.
Usually you would have 2 or 3 Ide cable slots on your motherboard. 1 for the 3.5" disk, 1 for primary devices and 1 for secondary. These are connected to hard drives, CD Roms etc. This card allows for extra optical drives or HDD's.

Have a look if it's in a PCI slot. If it's not there, and everything on your computer works ok, I wouldn't worry about it. I'd trust Device Manager more than a web page for detecting drivers.
