tried that before, and it had to power off and power on to complete...same thing. I'll try a windows update and see too.

the only windows update that comes up is for the 56k modem that was removed.

installed the bios update for my mobo, the PCI and SM still come in the device manager.

Use the edit button to edit your posts and put more information in it. Don't post 3 scentences in three different posts.

You need to install those drivers. Google the manf and name of your MB to find the proper drivers.
