Device Manager Error 31Locked
My operating system is Windows XP Service Pak 2. Upon attempting to re-install my network adapter (this happened after my phone service & power took an electronic/possible lightning hit) I
received a Device Manager Error 31. Microsoft
has proposed a registry set of entries to restore the main TCP/IP settings, but to no avail. I have purchased a new 300 Gig Harddrive to reinstall XP but my motherboard fights when I try to use this drive on either channel of the motherboard. When I run my old drive (the one that can’t connect to internet), I have to have it on a particular channel, on the motherboard, or it won’t work period. It is a 250 Gig drive. I have multiple drives in my computer. I have run various anti-virus/anti-spam/anti-spyware programs believing it to be a virus. Any idea about the 31 error?
