I run Windows XP on PC with ASUS A7A266 Motherboard, 1.2GHz Athlon CPU, 512Mb DDR RAM, 2 Maxtor 40 Gb HDD's, PCi USB2 card. For no apparent reason, at every boot, a Found new hardware box pops up claiming to have found a SSA controller, whatever that is, and asking where to look for drivers. Uninstalling it in device manager does not affect the system apparently, but it springs up again on next boot. What is happening and how do I cure it, please.

Do you have a raid controller for your 2 hard drives?

I'm not absolutely sure what a raid controller is. I'm certainly not aware of having one, and I have not fitted one.

Thanks for your efforts, Snowguy, but I came across the answer by trial & error. The problem was caused by the PCi USB2 card for unknown reasons, but possibly because it was attempting to exceed the power available on my system.
