hi, i have just restarted my m380uk h.p. and am now getting a driver wizard saying its found new hardware and wants me to install driver? i dont have any new hardware and i dont have any sofware on my harddrive when it searches for it, (pci adapter and multimedia audio adapter are what its looking for) they worked ok earlier today. can anyone say why or how this happened and how can i sort it out....thanx

the drivers for these devices have become corrupted.

Easiest way is to do a system restore to a point when they were working (yesterday or day before).

system restore is in the Accesories Menu

Shut down your computer rather than doing a Restart. Then boot it up again after 5 mins.

Let us know if you get the same message again.

Not sure what the harware is

PCI adapter is quite often a network card (could have built in Lan)

multimedia sound card?

run the above to findout exactly what is installed then post back so we can find the drivers required
