The only thing I am not sure regarding what you wrote is that my brand new Vertex 2 and my Caviar Black are both showing up as yellow as well. I doubt all 3 of them are about to fail.... If it is, then I guess its time for me to buy lotto, cuz it seems that the odds are quite low for that.

pp, I am using Windows 7 64bit.
