I am getting this error on a Sony Viao.  Further states the driver is unstable.  Tried deleting and letting Win XP re-discover, but still happens.  Any ideas?

Hmmm I did not find one with that date, but the other I did find has the same version number?  But when I try and install it tells me it failed.  I think it is because the other continously tries to install.
