Default Found New Hardware Wizard keeps coming up

I recently set up my computer with a new version of windows xp. Everything runs great on it, but i keep getting the popup for found new hardware wizard trying to install drivers or software for a "PCI Device"

There is none and I have no cd. I have gone to device manager and tried both uninstalling and disabling the PCI Device with the yellow exclamation point by it. It still comes up every time i restart.

when i look at properties, it says its located in PCI slot 4, which I think may be the ethernet card i put in it. It works fine, and thats just a guess.

any ideas as to what is making this keep happening or how i could stop it?

Try moving the card to a different slot.

Check the manf. website of the PCI card. Also do a windows update and click the custom feature - then see if your PCI driver is on the list of available drivers to download/install.
