Default New Hardware Found Wizard won't go away on startup.

Every time I start the PC now, on Startup I get "New Hardware found Wizard: PCI Device" and everything is already installed! It wont go away, even if I click cancel. I know I can disable Plug and Play, but dont want to do that (not good)

How can I get rid of this stupid thing.

The only PCI Devices I have are the Graphics and Sound, and the Drivers are installed, and yes, I have reinstalled both of them

maybe something is still on in BIOS? check there
you could always turn off the service, but you might miss something important

so in your device manager there are no other devices listed or yellow ! i would guess its probly a conflict of some sort i dont think it would be graphics card due to you dont have integrated video i would go to the driverguide .com and pickup there driver toolkit it will help sort out the issues quite nicely. just look for the device driver that it shows as not installed and either disable it or check for and update it usually finds it. hope this helps
