I recently formatted my computer and keep windows xp. However, when I got to the Device Manager to see if anything was missing, I saw a yellow exclamation mark next to "Video Controller (VGA...

The exclamation mark means you don't have the proper driver installed and the device may or may not work properly. If you don't have the driver CD's you will have to find the driver by searching the internet for it, download it, and install it. The hardest part can be finding the proper make and model of the device. If you know that already, it should be easy. For example if your VGA card is a ATI VGA Wonder, search for that. If you don't know, there is a means of finding it. In the same device manager where you saw the exclamation marks, click on Properties for the device, then click on the Details tab. You will see something like PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_01DF&SUBSYS.......... Use this string (yours, not my example) in your internet search and you will probably find the vendor, make and model, then you can search for a driver. Once you have the proper driver downloaded, go back into the Device Manager and click on the Driver tab of the device's properties. There is a button labeled Update Driver that starts a wizard, which will let you choose the driver you downloaded.

I need to load the drivers for the audio and video on my Sager D270s. It's a windows xp and the pnp for the video and audio are below Multimedia Audio Controller PCI\VEN_1039&DEV_7012&SUBSYS...

Connect the system the internet, click your start menu, scroll to control panel and click it. From your control panel, double click system icon, when it opens, click hardware and thereafter, click device manager.

You would see a list of your hardware, scroll to audio, right click on it and press drivers update. The audio driver will automatically be installed from the internet. The same applies to the VGA.

Make sure the internet connection is strong enough to download the drivers, it might not download if internet speed is slow.

Best wishes.
