Cannot add New Hardware to XP
Posted on 2006-06-19
Hi Guys and Girls,
I recently posted a Question because the Add New Hardware wizard in Windows XP would continuously try to install a DVD drive that my client added to his Dell Desktop. Every reboot the wizard would come up and try to installl and was unable to find the correct drivers. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the drives, no change. Checked Jumper settings...Master and Slave correct. Try updating drivers from XP disk, no change.
Originally I thought the issue was simply to do with the DVD drive, but since I uninstalled the CDRW drive that wizard comes up as well. And I have also tried to Add a new printer, to no avail the drivers will not install.
It seems that I cannot add any new hardware to his Windows XP Home box. Anyone have any ideas what could be causing this issue. I have to get this fixed, so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
