pci device found by new hardware wizard...

... but I have not installed any new hardware!!
After pc boots up/restart the wizard runs thru the usual search for drivers, finds nothing & then says can't install.
Anyone know why this is happening suddenly out of the blue?

Just take a look in Device manager and see if there are any Yellow exclamation marks or similar. That may give you a clue.

Also check the Event Viewer (via Computer management) and see what that has to say. You will certainly find errors in there.

Is there anything in Device Manager with yellow exclamation mark. Should show something if trying to install hardware.

In Other Devices- PCI device -I found this - PCI Slot 3 (PCI bus 1, device 10, function 0)

So what is in PCI slot number 3?

If all else fails you could disable it in device manager.
