PCI Modem Not Found

By NJShoreguy

  1. When I first built this computer 2 years ago, I had installed a PCI Ethernet card because I had initial issues with the onboard Ethernet port (which have been resolved). I removed the PCI card.

    Now, every time I boot up the computer, it attempts to install the "new hardware" and looks for the software, then says the PCI modem cannot be found.

    How do I correct this? I had gone into the Device Manager and uninstalled the device, but every time I reboot, it pops back up.

    You need to locate all drivers for your computer, for the still installed hardware
    You will need to provide more details, ie the motherboard or computer manufacture and model. And also the operating system (Windows Xp?)

    Please put your System Specs in your Profile

    The motherboard is a Chaintech S1689. I'm running Windows XP Media Center 2005.

    The PCI modem card was removed as I stated from the motherboard, so I don't understand why it is still trying to install something not physically there.

    And Audio:

    Are the only things Windows cannot find automatically on that board.
    If you have any other devices attached (either internally or externally) you will need the information on that too.

    Also it is always wiser to update your Profile with your specs (instead of posting them)
    This will enable support people to help you a lot easier
