pci device not found

Hello, my Windows 2000 Pro on each restart states "pci device not found". I have tried all methods to supply a driver, delete the old etc. but as I can not find out what Device is needing a driver I can not really supply a driver.
To handle in the PCI instal driver routine, I have tried Windows update, supplied a W2K CD had the PC search the C-drive, done the Microsoft full update of 2000. I am still getting the error message.
How can I find out what device is requiring the driver?
Regards, Peter

Re: pci device not found

Hi, Peter,

PCI Devices - modem, audio card, video card, etc....

Are you missing any devices? Have any loaded with a standard driver?

If you right click on My Computer and click on Management then click on Device Manager, look for something with a yellow exclamation point. That will identify the hardware in need of a driver for you.
If at first you don't succeed, you must be installing Windows

Hi Peter
Try the Everest Home Edition (for free in http://www.lavalys.com/products/overview.php?pid=1〈=en&pageid=1) and search for any device not properly configured.

Usually Everest will point to the download driver of the device...

Keep us updated

Hi,

Did you installed drivers supplied with your motherboard's cd?
