Puter doesn't know whether card is faulty or removed.

I'd go ahead and delete it.

See if you can uninstall the driver, it may be better than just deleting it.

Go ahead and delete it from device manager. It sounds as if it is the scsi pci card.

The thing with device manager is if you delete the wrong thing and go to a straight reboot. Windows will re-find it and reload it, on some things you will need a driver disk. But usually any thing with a yellow asterisk can be deleted.

This points to either a peripheral removed or the proper drivers are not installed for it.
