    where are you saying you are missing those? Those sound like drivers, not updates.

    okay, where is it saying you need to update windows 7?

    For drivers, click start > run > sysdm.cpl > hardware tab > device manager > check for yellow triangles. Those are the drivers you need. When you find a yellow triangle, check out the hardware ID's on the driver details tab; it should look like PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_24DF&SUBSYS_01681028&REV_02.

    The VEN_ is the vendor ID, the DEV_ is the device id; enter both of them at http://pcidatabase.com/. That will give you the details you need to track down the driver. Don't hesitate to post back here; it's a lot to swallow at once.

    If that's a factory-brand computer, advise us what brand name and model name and model number it is.

    If that's a home-made computer, advise us what brand name and model number its motherboard is.

    Have you installed Windows 7 or Windows 7 SP1?

    Is it Home Premium or Professional or Ultimate?

    Is it 32-bit or 64-bit?
