Says my processor is unkown?!!?.. among other things (upgrade advisor..) HELP

I'm confused.

NVIDIA nForce PCI System Management
uGuru Micro-Processor

beside them it says,
There is no compatibility data available for this device. For more information, go to the device manufacturer's website or Windows Marketplace, or contact your retailer.

How could they NOT be compatable.. freakin processor...is this a problem? or is just some bullcrap i can ignore?

Also it says my printer is unkown.

edit:

And ***.. Home basic doesnt have that cool aero stuff? ... thats kind of a jip. Theres no point in buying it then, it'll look and work basically the same as xp...

Graphic/video cards have their own processors, that's an nVIDIA video card processor it's talking about.

In english it's "there are no Vista drivers for this card".

It says "go to the nVIDIA site, they might have Vista drivers...it's their card anyway"

You need to install drivers for yoru video card, sound, and printer. Then things should start working.

What are your full system specs?

I'm too lazy to type it out. I've got more than enough ram, and hard drive space. I also have a 512 ddr ram video card.

So should I just be able to download vista drivers and be all set?

The only drivers you need for vista are video, sound, printer. Everything else is pretty much native in vista. Maybe not even printer.

uguru is a small extra processor built onto the motherboard
to provide extra function.
It shouldn't interfere with vista.
Check the motherboard manufacturer for proper drivers.
