    My computer was working fine until a few days ago when the networking function stopped working. It will not connect to the outside world. I also now have an "Unknown" icon with the big yellow questionmark showing up and "Found New Hardware" window pops up on startup. This is after I have disconnected everything from the computer. The computer type is a Sony PCG-F180 (notebook). How can I figure out what this "New Hardware" is so I can load the proper drivers if that is what it takes?:(

    Further information on this problem:

    After the question mark it indicates "This device is not configured correctly (Code 1)". This comes from the "Add/Remove Hardware Wizard" after highlighting the question marked driver and clicking next... I cannot figure out the hardware associated with this problem. Again, everything is disconnected (including docking station and PCMCIA card). It keeps detecting something that it does not have a driver for.

    can you remove all devices in safe mode as you can in win9x ?

    if you can, why not remove all devices in device manager and let the o/s redetect all devices again.

    it might resolve the unknown device

    Also you can go into the device manager and just diable it and it will not show up again. I just had the same problem.
