pci early non-vga device

  gul 22:59 16 Mar 2003

I have reinstalled Win ME on my firends system and get the yellow ! under other devices in device mamager as for pci early non-vga devicem

This I understand is VIA power management controller.

I can find no markings on his motherboard as to the make or model number and he has no infor either.

Urgent help required to obtain a driver that will be suitable.

Can this device error be ignored?

Gul - did you ever fix this problem?

I get the same prompt - ie

After removing the entry from Device manager - the next time I boot up I get:

Windows has found the following new hardware:
PCI Early non-VGA Device
Windows can automatically search . . . etc.

If I click cancel - it comes back on the next re-boot.

If I click next I get:

Windows was unable to locate the software for this device. If you do not want to install the software now, click Finish.

When I click finish, Device manager shows the following under 'Other Devices':

PCI Early non-VGA Device

both showing the yellow question mark!

I noticed from your post that you said:

"This I understand is VIA power management controller."

What led you to this conclusion?

Has anyone else any suggestions?

If it's a 440LX motherboard, this is an intel chipset - so whatever it is, it's NOT a Via device.

However I also found a link describing this error message as associated with a Via chipset - and specifically the Via 586 chip. Several links point to the error with a variety of ystem devices - Via power management, VGA cards, sound cards.

So it looks like a good bet would be to install the Via 4-in-1 drivers (if it really is a Via board - look for Via on the large chips) and see if that helps.
