Device Manager Error

  Thomo1 19:43 21 Oct 06

For some reason my device manager is showing an error that it never has before.

It is saying on error on the: PnP BIOS extension

Windows cannot initialize the device driver for this hardware. (Code 37)

any ideas what up?

"Code 37
Windows cannot initialize the device driver for this hardware. (Code 37)

Recommended resolution

The driver returned failure from its DriverEntry routine. Uninstall the driver, and then click Scan for hardware changes to reinstall or upgrade the driver.

On the General Properties tab of the device, click Troubleshoot to start the Troubleshooting Wizard."

Is what MS say.
