I've installed a new PCI card today (a LaCie USB 2.0 4 port) but I'm having a bit of trouble with the driver.
It's admittedly my own fault as I clicked on "Yes" when it detected the driver from the CD-ROM then realised the driver that windows 2000 selected was the Win 98/Me Driver NOT the Win 2K/XP driver! D'oh!
I have a dual boot system with Win 2K on 1 partition and Win 98SE on the other. When Win 98SE detected I made sure it grabbed the correct driver and the USB 2.0 card works great on here.
On win 2K however, if I reboot with a peripheral plugged into the USB card (e.g. my HP 960C printer), windows starts to load (after selecting 2k from boot magic) but after the windows 2000 Pro screen I get a blue STOP screen. The screen says something about it being caused by a driver and should be reinstalled.
If I unplug the printer and put it back into a USB 1.1 port so that the USB 2.0 card is empty, it boots up fine. It even allows me to then plug in my printer and print from it using th e USB 2.0 card.
Again, on re-boot, the blue screen until I unplug the printer again.
I have gone into the device manager and uninstalled the new card and rebooted but it automatically reinstalls the same drvers before I get a chance to browse the CD (it installs the same drivers if the CD is not in too so they must be somewhere on the hard disk which windows is locating)
I have tried using the "update Driver" function but this produces the same results.
You say that when you boot up normally after uninstalling it locates the wrong driver and installs it automatically so I thought if you uninstall the driver reboot in safe mode it might not install automatically then when you get to the desktop you could then reinstall using the correct driver. It might not work but perhaps worth a try.
