Default Hardware entries

After re-assembling one of my machines, I later realized that I placed the modem and NIC into different slots than they were before.

As soon as I checked into the device manager, the entries showed up as "NIC #2, 56k modem #2, etc." Switching the devices back to their respective slots didn't solve the problem.

Is there any way to remove these extraneous entries?

I judge you when you use poor grammar.

Thumbs up

Try Removing the entries in Device Manager, then switching off and switching them around.

They should be detected next time.
