Updating Hardware Information Database

  Cumano 18:05 25 Aug 2003

I have tried to install two Plug & Play devices to my computer, but when the UHID dialogue window opens I have waited over halfhour for a response to show in the progress bar. I have gone into Task Manager and found that UHID is not responding. I have also tried to get Driver Updates via Device Manager and the same thing happens. I have contacted Microsoft Support and after almost two hours help all I have achieved is an apology that they cannot help me. My computer details are, Pentium III 550Mhz, 128Mb RAM,Windows ME OS, 16Gb HDD. Can anyone help.

Most hardware comes with it's own drivers and an install program. Try using that instead.

The hardware that I have tried to install do not have any discs. Thank for your response, Cumano.

I have followed your advice and used the link you provided. Hopefully by following the instructions from Microsoft Knowledge Base I can get rid of the 32,000+ oem*.inf files from my computer. Thank you for your response to my request for help. Cumano
