I have some uninstalled devices in "Device Manager" under "other devices" that have a yellow question mark next to them. Their names are shown as:
  • PCI Memory Controller
  • Other PCI Bridge Device
  • SM Bus Controller

What are they? I need to know what these devices are to install their drivers.

They didn't pop up after a new device by the way. They just suddenly showed up, which means it's probably something I already have.

Download and (re)install your chipset drivers. (Intel calls them the "INF Update Utility", Via calls theirs the "Hyperion Pro Driver Package", etc)

Ah! so they were in the mother board's CD. Thanks awoolf. Problem solved. :)
The drivers on the CD may be a little old, you want to check the motherboard manufacturers website and download the latest drivers. This will insure you are getting the latest and best performance.
