Standard VGA Graphics Adapter
This is most likely your on-board graphic adapter. Right click on it, and post what options you have there (say also, which ones are grayed out).

For now, go "disable", restart your computer, and report:
- is yellow question mark still present in Device manager?
- run Belarc again, and repost this section:

As soybean said, you may need to BIOS, but before you do so, go back to Device Manager>Display Adapter, right click on Standard VGA Graphics Adapter [Display adapter], but this time click "Uninstall".
Reboot.
- check Device Manager, if it's still listed
- repost Belarc....we just need this section:
