Thanks for the attempt, but the answer above is related to a smart card reader that is not reading cards, not a smart card reader the computer refuses to load drivers
I have Vista 64 and SP 2 installed. When I plug the smart card reader into the computer I get the dialog box that states I have new hardware, and need to install drivers. The problem is the computer is being extremely stupid once this happens. It will not automatically install the drivers. When I put the manufacturer disk in, it claims there are no drivers. When I manually show my stupid computer exactly where the correct drivers are, it tells me there are no drivers.
Anybody have any other ideas, I'm quite frustrated right now. The base help desk is incompetent beyond a joke so no help from that angle.
EDIT: I saw a post in another thread that said hit "F8" to disable driver
signing at start up. I tried that and the computer asked me what my boot order was, no questions about driver signing. If that's a viable option, is there another way to disable driver signing?
