Unknown New Hardware - Driver not found
Posted on 2008-06-23
On bootup of Toshiba Tecra M3 running XP Pro, SP3, get new hardware message, but hardware designated as "unknown" (making it very difficult to find a driver!). Had new hardware wizard search throughout computer (and backup from before new hard drive installed), but to no avail.
My Computer->right click-hardware device manager reports a question mark on "other devices", : "unknown device" located on INTEL(R) 82801FBM LPC Interface Controller - "reinstall the driver for this device", driver instance iD ACPI\SMCF030\4&3863886D&0.
I have been resurrecting the laptop (re-installing all the software) since it crashed and needed a new Hard drive. All was going well until I got to the reinstallation of the wireless network drivers (Toshiba TM31NTCHPXP2K.EXE and INTWLANANABGDRVVTXP2K.EXE) and mobile PCIA card wireless software... and since that installation have been getting the "new hardware" message
Everything SEEMS to be working OK - should I just ignore the "new hardware" wizard and instruct it not to report on this unknown new software again, or can anyone advise on what this unknown software might be.
Many thanks for any response
