    I'm running 2000 on an office computer.

    Every once in a while, when I start up, I'm greeted with a "found new hardware" window and the system starts looking for drivers.

    In my hardware profile, there is a "PCI Communications Controller" that is obviously not installed properly. I assume it's a modem or embedded card of some sort. I have an intel 810E chipset.

    Where can I find the driver for this device?

    Thanks in advance,
    Dr. Michael

    Your best bet would be to go to the manufacturers website and download all the updated drivers for your system based on the motherboard type and product version. It may also be that your bios is not uptodate and cannot properly identify the device. To update your bios you have to check which model of bios it is amibios, award etc.. then go to their site and flash your bios.

    PCI Communications Controller is your modem, if u have an integrated one, u may be able to use the cd that came with your mobo or download it from your mobo manufacturer's website

    if it is a card, u should have a box for the modem, or at least the cd that came with the modem or at least a receit that would tell u what the brand and model was

    Try going into device manager and uninstalling the driver for the modem. Reboot and Windows will find the device and install drivers.
