Hello everyone, just had a Z61T bought for me as a replacement for a busted ACER, and I have to be honest and say I'm seriously pleased with it
BUT, I have a problem, a niggle as it were. Everytime I boot up and get va little message in the task bar telling me that "new hardware" has been found, as above, initially the wizard describes it as IDE ATA/ ATAPI controller, then disappears when I cancell it and it returns as " Unknown PCI Device". I can't find any drivers, none are installed, can't roll back can't even uninstall whatever it might be. Device Manager is no help at all- so any and all ideas greatly appreciated and welcome !!
I do love this machine tho
EDIT : Sorry forgot to say I'm running XP Pro SP3 2GHZ model( T72000) and 2GB RAM
Solved! Go to Solution.

I agree it should but it doesn't, I have attempted that 2x now and still no progress
PCI bus 0, device31, function 2 ?????
PCI device properties under device manger only reveals under "details" -
No drivers, no rollback available , nothing!
It shows up as a windows storage device when I run AIDA32 ??
Any ideas to what it is exactly ? At least it'd give me a chance of tracking down a driver and getting rid of this irritating message and window

Install the Intel chipset driver to begin with.
Your missing device is likely to be a card reader.

hey hey hey ! guess who's got a sn
miley face ??
First off thanks for all the input /suggestions, it wasn't any of the above but certainly in the ball-park, it was in fact an update to the Intel Storage Manager driver that was required but hey I wouldn't have known to look at it if it wasn't for your suggestions .
So, BIG THANK YOU !!
