I have a Latitude D620 laptop which is running Windows XP Professional. If you guys need to know more about my computer, let me know.
Whenever I boot my computer, I get a popup from the icon taskbar at the bottom right that says "Found New Hardware: SCSI Adapter". Then, the 'Found New Hardware' wizard pops up. Of course, not knowing what the [bleep] the SCSI Adapter is, I don't have a CD or any other software. I close the wizard and another popup occurs that says "Problem installing hardware" that informs me that the SCSI Adapter wasn't installed properly. This occurs every time I start up. How can I fix this issue?

Do you have a cd that came with your Dell with drivers on it, if yes then look on it if you have any for the scsi drivers.

scsi is similar to IDE or SATA connection, it could be for your cd/dvd rom but you do not have one installed.

Is your laptop working without any problems apart from this issue at start up, if your laptop works well then you can go to your device manager and right click on the scsi adapter (should have a yellow exclamation point beside it) and choose property and at the bottom of the box where it says device usage choose do not use this device (disable) after that the system will not try to find driver for this device at start up.
