Every time my PC starts up, it detects new hardware in the PCI-E slot: Microsoft UAA Bus Driver for High Definition Audio

However, it cannot find the drivers to install it. After I cancel the installation nothing happens, sound is fine, and the said device doesn't have a yellow exclamation mark next to in in the System devices tab.

Since everything is working fine, is there a way to make this mesage go away?

P.S. I recently installed a new graphics card, but that's working fine as well.

The only way to stop the New Hardware Found message, is to follow through with the installation even if the device is working correctly. This problem starts when you begin to install a device driver and stop before finishing, in your case you may have made a mistake when installing the graphics card... a simple click on the wrong device type icon is all it takes. This is a common problem with Windows XP and the only solution is to finish the started installation even if it was a simple mistake. The Device Manager will re-install the same driver and nothing will change with the device except that the anoying message will stop.

Follow the solution instructions in the Microsoft support page... it's for a Printer but the procedure is the same for any device.

The New Hardware Wizard may detect the printer device after every restart of the computer
