I have an IBM Thinkpad A21p 2629-HSU

I just installed W2K and all the drivers specific to my model via IBM's website. Now, whenever I reboot I get "Found New Hardware" for a PCI Serial Port.

For the life of me, I can't find a driver to satisify this PCI Serial Port.

Please help me find the correct driver before I go mad.

Thanks

does everything work? If it does and therefore you don't need it, just disable it in this hardware profile (from properties in device manager) it won't try and load it again

Everything is working so far, but I haven't inserted any PCMCIA cards, nor tested LPT1 or COM1 etc. I was hoping someone would have some insight on what this might be.

I have had this happen if I have an onboard modem on the Thinkpad. You may not have installed the modem drivers. Check to see if they show up in Harware Manager
