Question unknown device, windows 2000 IBM ThinkPad

Hi, I received my IBM ThinkPad T22 from Tigerdirect yesterday. And I'm likin it for the most part, I do have a problem tho, I formatted the hard drive and reinstalled Windows 2000 on it, I went into device manager and found all the unknown devices except for one and downloaded and installed those drivers fine, but theres still one left that I don't know anything about, Its labeled as an unknown device, when i right click it and hit properties I don't get any brand information or IRQ or anything, So far when I use the laptop I am not having any problems with hardware that I have found yet, the only information I get is the location of the device:

on Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Embedded Controller

I do not get any more information from device manager, I can run everest and find all the hardware on the machine if that would help anyone determine what this might be, any help or suggestions is greatly appreciated.
