I have a situation I could use help with. I was given an older ASUS desktop computer on which I have installed windows xp-pro and SP2. When I did that, I ended up needing a lot of drivers, which I finally found all of but 2: multimedia controller, and network controller. There is a yellow ! mark on both in device manager.
It has an ethernet card, a sound card, a modem, etc, and all are working perfectly. I have been searching the net for nearly 2 weeks, and have downloaded dozens of drivers, none of which have helped. I have the correct drivers for the sound card, the modem, and the ethernet card.
I believe these 2 problem devices may be obsolete. I have deleted them, but on restart they come right back, and the wizard tries to install the software, but never succeeds, no matter what I try.
At this point, I would just like to permanently remove these 2 items from the device manager. How can I do that in XP Pro?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
