Just out of curiosity, try Windows Update. Use the "Custom" option and check for hardware updates after it scans your machine. Does it show any available?

i run the custom option on windows update and the only thing available was the windows genuine advantage validation tool (KB892130) no sign of any hardware updates?? :blink:

i still cant get my digital camera/webcam working... when i plug it in and download the software it says there was a problem and the class installer denied the request...... would this be down to the yellow question mark over the ethernet controller in device manager??? :whistling:

Ooops...you must have replied during our server switch...I wasn't aware you had replied. Sorry.... :whistling:

The error you are getting can point to a lot of things. Let's see if we can find what's causing it.

Try disabling the Windows Image Acquisition service. Click Start, then Run, type services.msc and click "Ok". Locate the Windows Image Acquisition Service in the list that appears and double click on it. Change the Startup Type to "Manual" and then click on the "Stop" button. Apply the changes and reboot.

Try the install again.

Ok...

Open Device Manager, expand "Universal Serial Bus Controllers", then right click on each USB hub (both Generic and Root), and choose uninstall. Disconnect any usb devices you have connected and reboot. Windows should reinstall the hubs when it starts up.

Try to install the software for the camera before you connect the camera. Then connect the camera and see if Windows will install the drivers automatically.
