Dell 4550 PCI Input Device

By pentrex ·
Upgraded my Dell 4550 from XP Home to XP Professional. Right after that got some errors. All fixed successfully by updating and downloading proper drivers but the last one - "PCI Input Device" still decorates my Device Manager.

Tried to update the missing driver (as Manager says it is not installed) but couldn't. No drivers was found. Tried to look for appropriate input drivers in Dell's downloads. Found two input drivers but downloading those have not solved the problem either. Uninstalling the PCI Device and rebooting also have failed. Nether did updating the Chipset from the Dell site.

Anyone can say something what the "Input Device" is it referred to and what might be a cure?

Is that a Dimension 4550 then?

You could try the Unknown Device Identifier:

Looking through the list at Dell would be difficult, at best, without the service tag number.

Was a PCI card ever added to this machine?

Yes, it's the Dimension

No PCI cards were added and with the pre-installed XP Home there was no errors either.

Thanks. I will try the Unknown Device.

problem fixed!

Run as you recommended the Device Identifier and it instantly gave me all drivers IDs on my system. Based on that, it was not so hard to find a right driver. It turned out to be the Creative Lab SB Live Value Gameport. (never would have thought my system needs this weird widget but I downloaded it and the error gone)

Great thanks! The Unknown Device ID is is a great tool !

Did you go to the Dell Web Site

And enter the Dell Service Tag Number for this system?

That will give you every Driver that this system needs and this device will be one of those.

But at a guess the required driver is for the Track Pad.

But I'm a bit confused the Game Port for the SB should have been installed by Default.
