I'm not using it, I thought about pulling it, so I opened the case and found the name on it and install the driver for it and wouldn't you know it, no more yellow question mark. So I think I'm good.

Is there anything else you recommend me running/installing, before I start installing other software?

Thank you everyone for all for the help, Greatly appreciated.

i was figuring you probably didn't need the driver anymore. Perfect...
Every thing else is working fine on the computer?

I would update fully at the windows update site. even IE 7 if you don't it could leave you vulnerable to viruses as some applications use it by default.

Install one Anti virus and keep it updated.

AVG free edition

Avast!

Avira


Install Spywareblaster keep it updated

install A firewall and use it click one below:
Zone ALarm
Online armor

Install Malewarebytes anti-maleware

And ATF cleaner

And also JKdefrag
Run the Defragger once a month

install mozilla firefox it is more secure than IE7

I use and recommend WOT web of trust, it is an addon, that warns you ahead of time when you might be going somewhere bad.


Just always to keep everything updated also check your Java, and adobe flash at their respective sites for updates.
If they are not updated then your security will be compromised...


If you get all this taken care of you should be pretty set
