    In my new Windows XP installation, I am getting the Unknown Device found" at startup and cannot get rid of it.

    I tried letting it find it's own drivers and it did not find any. Next, I put in the CD's that came with my motherboard, video card, and monitor and apparently, it is not part of any of them.

    The message they give does not even give a hint about what type of "device" they have supposedly found so it does not really do me any good.

    I removed the unknown device through the control panel but it came back.

    Is there software somewhere that will identify what Windows is finding?
