How do I fix my "Base System Device" Error?

Recently my computer's driver would stop responding for a minute or 2 then resume back to normal. I get the error that my driver stopped responding. So I click on it to see why and troubleshoot it. But its unable to automatically fix it .
It says "The driver for Base System Device is not installed. Install the latest driver for the device" . I googled it and looked around this forum to see what I can do...I still dont know .

Any helps or point me in the direction of where I can get help would be great! Thanks!

Drivers & Downloads

and you will find it listed under Chipset.
