    Processor, PCI Card, Modem and Soundcard Issues
    « on: April 04, 2008, 11:04:24 AM »
    Major Problem!! Please help!!

    When I open the Device Manager there is an exclamation mark next to these devices. I have an Intel Celeron M Processor 1.3GHz. When I click on properties the Device Status it says

    Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing (Code 39)

    I've searched for drivers but Intel say there are no drivers for this. Also the troubleshooting for Windows just says uninstall it but I don't have any CD to reinstall it.

    This is also led to my PCI Card not being recognised along with the Soundcard, Modem and exclamation marks agains my USB controllers.

    Please help...I really don't understand whats going on!  :(

    I'm using WINDOWS XP ON A TINY LAPTOP

    Thanks to any suggestions

      When did this problem start? What happened?
      Please post the brand name and model of the laptop.

        It happened just this afternoon. The PCI Card suddenly stopped working, along with the sound and I can't connect USB devices. When it loads up it takes ages. I can run other programs and they work but slower than normal.

        The make of the laptop is Tiny N29.

        Thanks for the quick reply.

          Hmm... try uninstalling the devices with an exclamation mark in the device manager and reboot.
          Windows should redetect (and hopefully reinstall) the devices after the reboot.

          But I have to say it sounds pretty strange that so many drivers would simply stop working.
          You haven't installed or removed any software lately or fiddled with the hardware?

          Re-install your MBoard drivers from the driver CD that shipped with the machine.

            Good News indeed...stop by anytime.
            A full format and re-install may not have been neccessary but at least you're up and running.
