Hi, no it does not show any reference to any certain hardware. The Dell mobo has a "IC" componnent directly under the cpu! Dell offers no support for this board as to be able to identify this piece of hardware and its purpose! This maybe the componnent that is needing the drivers. tryed to run a search on this part with its numbers but didnt get much help other than it is a delta "IC".Do you no what this is?

Thanks Blase

Hello,
This had driven me crazy for a long time, until I stumbled upon this page from Microsoft. It turns out that it's the useless E-Support button on the front of your 8100. I popped open the case to see if there was something I could unplug, but it looks like it's connected through the same cable as the power button.
You can either install the driver for it (most likely on the drivers CD that came with your Dell) or try to cut some of the wires (risky) to disable it.

Hope that info helps. :thumbsup:
