I am trying to install a new internal dvd drive, I cant do so because for the
past couple of months, every time I boot up the new hardware wizard appears
thinking that there is a new printer attached and there isn't one. I can't
install any other non plug and play hardware because of this problem. Can
anyone help. Any help would be much appreciated.

The New Hardware Wizard May Detect the Printer Device After Every Restart of
the Computer;

Does the "Add New hardware wizard" appears "everytime" you boot the PC or
only when you have connected a new hardware(and new hardware is detected as
a printer?!).

If ANHW appears everytime, you need to check Device Manager for any
problems. Go to Start>Control Panel>System> hardware>Device Manager. Check
if any devices have question or exclamation marks.
