System:
Windows Vista Home Premium - 32 bit
Mobo Asus A8N SLI Delux
CPU AMD  3200+  64
3Gig DDR
XFX 6800 Xtream PCIe Video Card

After doing the CLEAN INSTALL method,  I have gotten all my devices working that I am aware of... save this.

I have no clue what it.  I only know something isn't working right as I looked in the device manager.

Do you have a Creative sound card with a game port? If so, this is most likely it. game ports are no longer supported in Vista

try downloading and installing all the latest drivers for your PCI peripherals, you can sometimes get this for 'add-ons' to PCI devices, such as the gameport on a sound card, or a TV Out connection on a graphics card.

Is this a self built computer or a store bought comuter?  I would try 2 things, you might put in the vista disk and see if the driver is one there, but since it didnt install it when you loaded vista probable not there.  If this is a store bought computer and you have a restore disk from the origingal setup you can try searching for the driver on there.  Personally I have 2 vista couputers and both have an unrecognized simple pci device.  Dont know what it is but everything is working so just told it not to ask me again and am ignoring it.

Hmm... perhaps it is an game port.
I looked at back of computer and there is an game port with 2 usb 2.0 slots.  IT was and addon for the mobo.. you plug a ribbon cable into the mobo.

Is there going to be support for game ports down the road?  I am not seein gany ASUS updated drivers for this mobo.

Also, some backup for my statement:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Game_port

"The game port is no longer supported by Windows Vista and will thus likely largely disappear"

Sorry I forgot I had this post alive still....

I dont have and sb sound card.  Mine is an built in AC97.  I have an ASUS mobo and It has an spot for a game port to plug into it.... thus giving me a game port on a pci slot on the case...

Im sure that is what it is.  I am not sure how the points should be done on this one so I will let Rindi go though what ever steps he and you all feel would be right.
