For reliable new hardware configuration - and for continual addition and removal of hardware (apart from usb mass storage devices) requires admin (local administrator is enough) to carry out most tasks properly.

You can always add a domain user into a local administrator's group quite easily - and it doesn't really effect network security much as a whole - as long as your users are responsible.

Greating melnahas,

Logon to the machine as admin, and then

start --> run --> gpedit.msc

Local Security Policy --> Computer Configuration --> Window Settings --> Security Settings --> Local Policies --> User Rights Assignments --> Load and Unload Device Drivers.

Add the power user group and see if it can help.

Let me know

then log off and logon again using power user account and try it.

HTH
