    found new hardware
    « on: May 07, 2010, 09:40:31 AM »
    I'm running windows XP. Every time my computer boots up the found new hardware comes up to install or update drivers. Everythings all ready  install. Even the hard drive. What can I do to resolve this coming up everytime????
                                  Thank You,

    Which device is bringing the Found new hardware wizard up? It should tell you. If it doesn't click next and should say something like Multimedia Video Device or the name of you piece of harware.

          Find the Sony in device manager...right clik it and select "Un-install"...
          Re-boot.
          It will automatically be re-installed.

            It's not a HDD...it's an optical drive.
            Power down and unplug either the data or power cable.
            Power up and remove it again in device manager.
            Then power down and re-connect it.
