mmmmm...all confusing to me...but that being said, what I've done in the past when any yellow warnings appear in the Device Manager... is to... try this approach...

1. go to Device Manager again
2. uninstall the drivers associated with the yellow warning devices
3. insert setup CD for whatever you had to install
4. activate the error sites and then send it to search for the drivers on its own...ie. let Windows do it...
5. it will search until it finds them, then it will reinstall them...

Won't work? Get back to "us."

It worked :blink:

...well, what do you know :) I am amazing...even to myself...an old country boy :whistling:

Anyway, 9 times out of 10 any anomalies in the Device Managar, can be fixed that way... uninstall, then reinstall, and always remember to have the install files handy, because Windows wants to be able to find them easily...the blind leading the blind and all that :help:
