    You need to visit the Gigabyte Website & download the drivers for that board..The Model # doesn't seem right though, generally it's like GA-K8N-SC or similar. Try PC Wizard and see what that reports http://www.cpuid.com/pcwizard.php

    Anything else with an Exclamation Mark is also missing Drivers
