    I'm using XP Home, and in the device manager, under "SCSI and RAID controllers", "SCSI/RAID host contoller has an exclamation point. It says that the registry info for this device may be corrupt (code 19). The trouble shooter and Windows Update tell me to check for updates to the driver (which there are none of) or to reinstall the device (do they mean the driver? I dont see a way to reinstall the device. I dont even know what hardware its needed for). When I uninstall the driver and reboot to reinstall it, it tells me it cant start, and needs to start in the last known good configuration, which was before I unistalled the driver.

    Do you have a SCSI hard drive or IDE?

    Under Properties what is listed for Manufacture and Location?

    The manufacturer and location are both unknown. As I said, if I uninstall it, the system won't even start, so isn't it probably using it? Also, there is a disable option if I right click on it. Is that the same as disabling it in the BIOS? If not, how do I edit the BIOS?

    BIOS is called SETUP most often. When you power on the PC it usually which key is used to enter SETUP. Often it is the Del key. Your PC manual should list it as well. If you don't find it, let us know the Make and Model of your PC and we should be able to tell you.

    Because you have a IDE drive you don't need the SCSI/RAID host contoller and you can Remove it from Device Manager, which should fix your problem.

    Happy Thanksgiving
