Exclamation Hard Drive Controller

Hey everyone, I have a gateway 550 running a PIII with windows 2000 with service pack 2 with 392,740KB of ram. I keep getting a error message about the hard-drive controller. I'm looking at it in the device manager and it tells me "This device cannot start. (Code 10). I tried updating the drivers and unintalling the drivers and I still cant the error message to go away. Any Suggestion?

What device is it?
I'm assuming it's a USB device as thats what these errors are generally about. Normally when trying to use an external USB device on older computers there is not enough power supplied through the USP port. If this is your problem you can either buy a PCI UBS card or a *powered* USB hub.

If you know which board you have, you might want to go to the manufacturer's site and download any Hard Drive Controller drivers, or the general Chipset driver.
