Loosing hardware in device manager

I've had Windows 7 installed for ages but just recently it has started doing something weird

When I start it up it doesn't recognise both my network card & USB ports(both on motherboard)

They are in the device manager wlth the yellow marks beside them, if I disable/enable them the work fine and the mark goes away.

But next time I do a restart it happens again.

any advice would be usefull

Thanks
Alan

The yellow marker means corrupted, go to the website and install new.

Get a new Graphics card and get updated driver.

Graphics Card - Install New Card

Dont forget about the driver.

Also don't forget to go to the manufactures web site to download the appropriate drivers. IMO

I have removed the items from th device manager and let windows find them again including drivers (no change)

In the device properties it shows This device cannot start. (Code 10) but as soon as I disable/enablt it works fine

I'm sure that this started happening after a Windows update!! What a surprise

No, get the driver from the actual website. Not from MS update.
