the easiest way to get rid of those messages is to get the drivers for those devices

Go to device manager then uninstall what it has put in then reboot the PC and click install when it asks, choose I will look for location and then I will choose a driver from a list then click have disk and choose any unsuitable file and it won't be able to install it

As dsenette correctly points out getting the correct drivers would do, so if you can post the make and model of the devices then someone can look them up

To add to all of this, you basically need to go to either the computer maker's or the motherboard maker's website and download the installation files for the drivers for the devices in question, and run them. they are usually in .exe form, sometime zipped, and will include instruction for their use. I've had to do it many times myself, and so has anyone else who works with computers.
