Installed new HDD and mb is asus A7N8X-X windows finds "new hardware" that isnt there opens wizard that cant find driver for device.
I have nothing in PCI slots, "unknown pci device" has to be IRQ screwup somewhere but everything works except for service pack 3 for XP... after install it hangs on boot screen , will not boot . this is a IDE pc !!! THE INTELL ENTRY IN REG HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THIS PROBLEM. ???
Thanks for the suggestions . I did have the driver cd for the motherboard, BUT I found updated drivers from their site.. And I Am getting same problem . Looking through the new drivers I found where they added a "FIX" for this .. but for some reason its not working. I installed the updated ones twice to make sure .
It basically had a system32 run file to set it up with no driver .
Yes I have sound and everything else seems to be working fine. I have the "unknown PCI" disabled in device manager the only place it shows an error is in the system scan an tht shows a "problem device" . I dont think there is a driver for this specific it should be covered with the IDE driver.
See the NO_DRV and this readme is a setup information file that opens with note pad. I was going to manually put this in the system32 folder ... then I chicken'd out because pc is running perfect , no errors on boot running a normal startup and no crashes !
I am thinking now the "Asus Probe" was giving me kernel errors on boot up so I uninstalled it , but would the kernal error on a "motherboard temp monitor" cause service pack 3 to lockup in the windows load screen??
