I really hope I am posting in the right place, please forgive me if I'm not. I just put in a new motherboard in my machine, an ASUS M3A. I went to install the drivers from the support cd that came with it. It didn't give me the option to install drivers because I wasn't connected to the internet. Under device properties Ethernet Controller and SM Bus Controller have a yellow question mark. From there it takes me to a screen saying it needs the drivers...and asking to connect to the internet...which I can't do lol. Can someone give me a suggestion on how to go about fixing this issue?

You will have to install the drivers manually off the cd. Dont go through the Add new hardware wizard. Open the cd up in explorer and run the setup.exe program.
