Hi All, I am running Windows Pro XP SP3. Every time I start the computer the "New Hardware Found" window pops up. I have tried fooling it by going through the Wizard and selecting a driver then canceling but it still keeps popping up. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated..............Ray

Hello,

I'm guessing you didn't install any new hardware. :)

Go to Start> run... type in devmgmt.msc, click OK ... this will launch Device manager. Do you see any yellow or red marks showing up. If so, please list them here.

Morning Makai, many thanks for responding. Yes, I have yellow question marks for "Other Devices" -> "Video Controller" & "Video Controller VGA"..........................Ray

You are missing some device drivers as suspected.
We are going to need the make and model of the computer. Is it a dell, HP, emachines, home built.
We are looking to find the the drivers for the main board.

Many thanks for responding. I have located the original driver disk for my Toshiba laptop and will try to reinstall the video drivers. I had a problem with the video display and have been using the auxiliary port to run a second monitor. I will let you know if I can install this driver...............Ray
