Hi all, I have a problem that keeps occurring every time i start my computer and log on. It keeps going into the 'Found New Hardware' wizard looking for a Bluetooth dongle i have attached to one (or any) of my USB2 ports. I have tried uninstalling and re-installing but it doesn't seem to solve the problem. It also happens when i log on as a different person too.
My comp is a Dell Dimension 2400 about 4 months old with win XP home and service pack 2.
I also use it on my old computer without any problem. P3 700 Dell with win 98 SE.
Try this go to device manager click on the device that is causing the problem then update driver and choose install from list or specitic location, check don't search,click next DON'T click on have disk just click next the computer should start loading the driver. This action is a shot in the dark so can't say if it will solve your problem.
Now when i go into 'Device Manager' i have, under 'Ports(COM & LPT)' approximately 34, yes 34 'Bluetooth Communications Ports' ranging from COM7 to COM40, an ECP Printer Port(LPT1) and one 'Unknown Device'.
I had this problem with a Saitek device (Wheel)once. I stopped the unwanted "Found New Hardware" message after using the "Add/Remove Hardware" option from the control Panel instead of performing an uninstall. I later re-installed the drivers etc without the message repeating.
