Unload whatever progs you loaded between the time it was working and not working...delete all associative files that are safe to do so.
You did a sfc _/scannow ? And that did not fix the problem...
Then, I'm going to make a few assumptions, and if correct, then act upon them...pick option A or B...
1. specially built for you
2. but no OEM disk included
3. box that mother board came in may have been included, with a bunch of driver disks enclosed
4. some 3rd party ware tossed in for good measure
1. bought off the shelf
2. OEM disk included, recovery disks included
3. bunch of other disks tossed in also
Your probs sound like mother-boardy files mismanagement. Search for the disks that indicate something to do with utilities' drivers ...in your case, the modem, and VGA monitor...pop over to NVIDIA nForce Audio/Video and download their drivers, along with Asus's VGA drivers.
If the computer was built for you, and you got no disk with it, go back to the store and demand a copy of the install disks, no skin off their noses to burn you a copy...an XP OEM will cost you a few bucks. An original XP disk will cost you a whole bunch of bigger bucks...
If the computer was bought ready-made, it should contain an OEM already and accompanying rescue disks.
Try to find a friend who will lend you their same-version disk, and make a copy of it onto your hard-drive, making sure it is an exact copy... c:\Windows Copy You can refer the computer to this folder in future when it goes looking for the install disk. Don't forget to copy his code and activation key down as well.
Go back to the Device Manager and go down to each of the items marked with the yellow exclamation mark. You will want to reinstall the drivers...so pick that option. Follow the prompts with your disks at the ready...it will automatically go looking for them. If it does not find them then try to determin the device is that is calling for that driver, and then visit their home page for a driver update.
In either event, insert the install disk with the drivers on it [them]. If you have two install drives [eg. I have two burner drives, and use both] then go through the start up again...when you come to the point where it needs to find a driver, set it to searching the loaded disks...if it cannot find them there, pop in another set of disks that came with the computer...and so on until fixed. If this works, copy down which disk contained which files, and later make a copy of those files on a floppie or something.
If the above does not work...then download and install either Driver Magic [http://drivermagic.c...ph-welcome.php] or Driver Genius [http://www.driver-soft.com/ ...15 day freebie] and run both, one after the other, to get a feel for what's what.
Do a scan of your computer and make a list of all the drivers it digs up and also a list of those that it feels need updating...include the ones that you already know are problems...
Then go to the following http://www.dll-files...dex/index.shtml and get the files you need.
There are a couple of other free sites if you look for them.

under Drivers, the download is NVIDIA nForce chipset and network drivers for FIC K8MC51G
and...the actually manufacturer of the motherboard does not list the driver on their site, neither does nvidia. You would need to grab the drivers from there, or from the disk that came with the computer.
