    Hi all,


    For the last several weeks now on startup on my laptop running Vista I keep getting a pop up stating new hardware has been detected and do I want to install the driver for it. I select yes windows looks for a driver but cannot find one. I have looke in device manager for anything that is amiss. And under other devices there is the yellow mark stating that there is a problem. The only thing I can find out is that it is a plug & play item, no specific name or anything to tell me what it maybe. When I select Properties for the said device the details I am given are \Device\00000025 and that it is not configured correctly. Is there anyway I could find out what this is ? Or should I uninstall it and reboot, and hope that the problem gets fixed on startup.


    Thanks. Wizzkid
