I recently had a problem on my PC and had to reinstall Vista. After re-installing I keep getting a message that the PC has found new hardware and can't locate the driver. I have unplugged all devices. If I go into device manager I can see an icon that says 'unknown device' but i can't see a way of actually finding out what it is. If I boot into XP (I have 2nd hard drive running XP) then all is fine and I don't get the message.
Can anyone tell me how to find out what the device is or how to rectify the problem?
I haven't got the PC in front of me at the moment, but from what I can remember I get the options: 'install driver' 'uninstall driver' and I think I got 'properties' or something similar which gave me some info but it meant nothing to me, the info was a series of numbers, like xx0330100
Thanks for the advice guys, you're really helpful.
I disabled midi port in my bios and the messasge has now gone. Why would this have happened though? Im guessing it's software related as it happened after I reinstalled Vista. Can I/should I do anything to rectify it?
Thanks guys for the advice, this is the most helpful forum I've been on! My main machine is an Apple Mac and I can usually sort most things out myself, but I'm not as clued up when it comes to the PC so thanks again for your time!!
