Windows 7: Device Driver Error

Windows 7 32 bit
Device Driver Error

Hello, I have a question about the following error
I discovered in my Device Manager:

The message reads:

The hardware was not installed because the
wizard cannot find the necessary software.

? Other devices
? Ethernet Controller
? SM Bus Controller
? Video Controller
? Video Controller (VGA Compatible)

I wanted to find out how I can go about
fixing these errors. I'm using a Dell computer
with Windows Service Pack 2 installed.

Thank you
