New Hardware Found

By jamesjohnson67 ·
I upgraded my os from windows 98se to windows me,when my system boots up, new hardware window popsup, I have installed all of the hardware that I know of. The new hardware search indicates that the hardware is pci communications, but everything seems to be operating ok. The system searches for a driver, but is unable to find one. What could be the problem and possible solution?

PCI communication devices are usually Modems.

Some modems need multiple drivers installed.
Try going to the modem mfgs web site, and getting the latest Me version of the driver.
Follow the instuctions, as some drivers require removing the modembefroe installing the driver.

Another possability is a network card.
