PCI Device without driver Vostro 1500, Windows XP
Posted on 2014-10-29
I wouldn't be fixing an XP machine unless I had to. So, I have to.
I cleaned it up of viruses and now it's running fine except:
When it boots it reports "Found new hardware" "PCI Device" and tries to install. But it can't find a driver.
I've downloaded and installed all of the drivers I could figure might be the case.
The Device Manager doesn't show a modem. I've installed modem drivers. No change.
The Device Manager, in System Devices shows a PCI Device with a yellow exclamation point. It shows:
But, no luck. Updating driver is the same as the attempt to install at boot.
How to get past this?
