    PCI / USB driver problem

    Everytime I restart my computer I get a bunch of "found new hardware" and its all my pci/usb devices. If i click "ask me later" it works fine and I can use the front usb ports on my CM Storm case. If i click "dont ask me again" they stop working completely. Note under Device Manager all these devices claim to be "This device is working properly"

    Except I have 1 unknown device that says it hasent installed a driver yet and when I try to install it I get.

    NVIDIA nForce PCI System Management

    An error occurred during the installation of the device:


    The driver installation file for this device is missing a necessary entry. This may be because the INF was written for Windows 95 or later. Contact your hardware vendor.

    Lately my computer has been choking itself so ive been fixing anything I can find to help. Any support will be appreciated.

    Ive been installing any microsoft updates that appear with "Windows Update" on my computer. I went to Microsoft's site for help but their autofix program ended up giving me the same error after it found the driver aswell.

    Have you made it up to SP2 yet ? I ask because you specs do not indicate Vista Home Prem 64 bit SP 2 . Just checking .

    Go to Start, Control Panel, System, open that up and see what it shows you as your OS .

    Only yellow icon is the one I listed in the first post, the "unknown device" that I can find the driver for but wont let me download the driver.



    The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28)
    The installation failed because a function driver was not specified for this device instance.

    To reinstall the drivers for this device, click Reinstall Driver.
