can anybody give me some advice. when i start my mesh matrix computer i get onto the dwesktop and from the icons below get a message box "found new hardware usb device" i cthen get "problem with installation your hardware might not work properly" i click these off and carry on as normal, but why is this happening?

You must have ether plugged a USB into one of the ports or you have not got a driver loaded for one of your USB hardware items. to find out right click on My Computer click properties click Device Manager look for yellow icons. click the item to see the problem

and install the drivers after following woodchip's procedure. Once this is done the yellow question marks should disappear in device manager.

Are you using XP?

Right Click My Computer click properties

I think you are left-clicking. Click on Start and move to My Computer. Right click on this line and choose Properties from the drop down list. From the box that appears choose the Hardware tab, and then click on Device Manager about half way down on the right.

Are there any yellow question marks against any of the entries.

Also have you plugged anything into a USB port such as a digital camera or card reader and just unplugged it without going throught the proper removal process?

managed to get there in the end. no yellow ? marks. also i havent plugged anything into a usb port only the modem, printer and web cam

Remove the items you said above from USB, just put one at a time in, and start the computer after each, to see what drivers it's asking for
