I have an IBM ThinkPad with Intel 855PM chipset. I recently formatted my hard
dosk and reinstalled Win XP SP2.

After installation, I installed the Intel Chipset dirvers supplied by IBM
(Ver 4.0.29). I then noticed an exclamation mark against the entry "ISAPNP
Read Data Port". In the device status it reads " This device cannot start
(Code 10).". I checked the driver and it reads:

Driver Provider: Microsoft
Driver Date: 7/1/2001
Drivre Version: 5.1.2600.2180
digital Signer: Microsoft Windows Publisher

In the Device Resources, it says that the device is not using any resources
because there is a problem. When I click on the "Set Configuration Manually",
button, in the Resource Settings window, the following appear with a red
slash in a circle against them:
Resource Type Setting
I/O range 0A79-0A79
I/O Range 0279-0279

When I clicked on the "Update Driver" button, XP searches the web but return
with a reply "Driver not found. Hardwarre cannot be installed". Since this
device was located on the Intel 82801DB LPC Interface Controller, I
downloaded the latest Intel chipset drivers from the Intel website (Version The problem still persists.

Can anyone help me resolve this? I am sorry for the lengthy post, but I
thought it best to include as much detail as possible. There are no problems
on my computer because of this issue, but I just want things to be perfect.

As I mentioned, I have downlaoded all the relevant IBM drives, for both Intel
Chipset and the other software/hardware from the IBM website. Only when it
didn't work did I downlaod the drivers from Intel.

If someone can let me know which particular hardware (example modem,
grpahics, memeory) could be cuasing this problem, I can then try installing
new software for that piece of hardware....

Hi Carey

Checked the BIOS settings...modem is not present in my BIOS..but "Wake up on
Dial" option was diabled. So I enabled it....

Checked the link you have provided and followed it....

there are some files which were not verified, but from their location i
could deduce that they are IBM's propertiary software for hard disk

Howevr, the setupapi.log has the follwoing entry:

This entry is repeated 6 times in the setupapi.log file.

I have the latest modem drivers supplied by IBM installed on my machine.

Is this of any help in deducing the source of the conflict?
