Driver incompatability notice on startup

It pops up when the computer boots to the desktop and it's a white box that pops up at the tray area and tells me theres a compatibility issue with a driver, but it says NOTHING about what driver foir what ! And it disappears before you can read it all. So over the course of a week or 2 i have scanned it every time i start to try and find what it says. But the rest gives no clue. I also can't find a way to bring it back so i can read it fully. But i'm not sure that will matter because at this point I've scanned it enough to know theres really no hint in it of what it's telling me besides theres a driver issue. Also, there are no yellow marks in device manager. This is W7 64 bit. How can i determine what it is?

Make sure you have all Important and Optional Windows Updates installed with required reboots. There may be several rounds.

Then set Updates to Automatic.

Check the logs to see which driver is erroring, or resolve any other repeat errors as shown in Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7. The other steps will help you go over Win7 thoroughly, too.
