what is your computer?

what device are you trying to install? is it working?

is there an option to click on "this device installed correctly" <-- click on it and ignore the error message.

Are you running 32 (x86) or 64 (x64) bit OS and do the drivers match this?

What are you trying to install the drivers for?

I never let windows install any drivers other than the basic generic stuff it installs on its own during the original install.

1. Whenever you plug something in and Windows wants to install anything, think of Nancy Regan and "Just Say NO !"

2. Install the manufacturer's driver from the CD in the box or from the manufacturer's web site.

I can't count the number of Windows re-installs I have had to do because someone let windows do what it "thought" was appropriate. Most frequent offender, laptop audio drivers.
