plug and play software enumerator.
using DirectX 9.0, I have found a fault on the above device.
It reads "this device has a problem: Code=2(0x2), try changing the driver for this device".
I also have the same problem with the "Intel 82371EB PCI to ISA bridge (ISA) mode.
Any advice how to correct these errors?
Thanks in advance
Robby

You fail to mention your windows version.

Try installing new Intel chipset drivers. If this doesn't work, delete the faulty device, reboot and they should be re-detected. If still faulty then come back and let us know.

In the left menu, download intel chipset software installation utility.

which driver file is causing the error? ntkern.vxd? isapnp.vxd? either way try using the system file checker utility to restore clean versions of the file(s) and see if that works!

Have removed "PCI to Isa bridge", and re-booted, and this has corrected this problem device.
How do you locate the "plug and play software enumerator" device. I have looked in "system" and have only found a device for "IO Read data port for ISA plug and play enumerator". I have removed this and re-booted, but the problem is the same.
I have installed the new chipset drivers, and this did not help. I ended up with a "root hub" problem, which I sorted out by updating driver.
Any other help would be grateful
Thanks
Robby

You could always try the "brutal" way...

Open regedit and delete the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ENUM

The Enum "dir" contains all the hardware. If you delete it all hardware will be -lost- on reboot. You'll have to go to add new hardware, it will find -no- PnP device, just have it search for devices, it will find some devices and the PnP stuff, after that you'll need to reboot and all PnP devices should be found.

Please be aware that due to deleting all the hardware you'll probably not be able to use the CD-ROM for some drivers, make sure you have them copied onto the disk before doing this.

This won't work on Win2k/XP. Never came across a situation like this on NT4/3.5x so I wouldn't know on those.
