Unkown Device at startup Win 95

By niemeier6 ·
I installed a new motherboard and had it
working. But I noticed I didn't have sound
and my motherboard has built in sound.
So I selected the new device and
restarted windows. Now everytime
windows tries to start it says It found an
unkowndevice and I need to insert a disk
but it doesn't tell me which device so I
don't know what disk. And when I try to
cancel it won't let me and windows won't
start. I started in safe mode and
deactivated the plug and play but it still
won't start. Any suggestions?

Boot to safe mode, go to control panel -> system -> device manager and delete all with a yellow !. This will reset the system devices it does not know, they may be in an entry labled unknown devices. Upon rebooting it will "find" the "new" devices, have your disks ready for any "new" devices and load the corresponding drivers.
