Same hardware found on every reboot

Hi

I have S3 Virge vid.adapter from Leadtek. It was properly(?) installed and
works fine. The problem is that on every reboot NT sees it as "new hardware
found" and tries to install it anew, saying that all the necessary files
are already on HD and I can skip copying them from installation CD. I tried
both ways and still, next time I start, NT writes: "New hardware (WinFast
3D S600) found. NT is installing the software for it". I did try to point to the drivers directly through Display Properties, Change driver or display type or smth, to no avail. How do fix that?
Any help would be appreciated.

What is your full configuration, including NT service packs (I am assuming you are running NT 4.0), etc.?

this is a PnP card. NT doesn't support PnP through the GUI yet. Remove the PnP sys files for ISA from the system and reboot (the correct filename is in the readme)

I am a novice, could you tell more about what files exactly should I look for?
Thanx in advance
