missing "system board extensions for pnp bios"
Posted on 1997-06-04
When I look at the device manager window of the Win95 system setup I encounter an exclamation mark on the above mentioned entry in the "system components" tree.
The properties state "device not available" but there is no further indication why. The resources used by the item are
fine, ie. no conflict with any other device in the system.
However, the system seems to work fine - there is just an
annoying feature when installing new hardware: anytime a
new hardware is detected, the setup additionally installs
serial and parallel ports and my graphic adapter again.
What causes my "pnp bios extensions" not being detected and
how do I cure the thing?
Here is my system description as far as relevant:
- motherboard SOYO VA5-VX with 512kb pb-cache
- AMD K5-100 processor
- 32MB EDO RAM (4x8MB)
- PIIX bus master drivers updated
- Award PnP BIOS (August 96)
