You have been using one of those driver update tools found on the web which, in my opinion, you should never use.
You have two choices. Use the tool you found on the web, and suffer the consequences, or manually update each device in the device manager by right-clicking on it and choosing "update".
The choice is yours.
A third choice? Leave well enough alone.
Also, what is the complete model number of your processor?
Have you applied the chipset inf?
Thanks, but I should have added in my original message that none of the devices will update using Device Manager. That option apparently can find no driver
online, or on my set up. Yes, I have tried searching every motherboard, afterburner,etc. disk that came with the machine (a Maingear) for the missing drivers. I have tried uninstalling each one, but upon restart
the devices with the yellow! reappear.
AS for the technical info you requested, hopefully this will suffice:

I think I know what you are saying now.
The problem is I cannot explain it, if it is the same as what I encountered once. And, I was unsuccessful at fixing it.
I just do not know how to tell you what to do. Perhaps one of the Intel support staff can help.
And, I hate to ask, but have you tried a clean install?
I am a big fan of getting rid of old hardware. However, I had one laptop that I was still using that did the same thing. I was never able to resolve the problem, nor do I know what it happened.
You may want to, if you have the time, do a fresh install with everything that is not needed unplugged, just to see if you can get a clean install. Then, try adding the devices back, one by one.
