Hi all
I need some help please deciphering a possible 'fix' to a problem I have.
Briefly..I installed a new motherboard a couple of days ago (GeForce 6100pm-M2) I got all the BIOS settings correct and booted up. Windows recognised the new hardware and installed the drivers from the installation cd..., exept one called 'Media' It appears in device manager as an unknown device with the yellow exclamated triangle.
It won't uninstall because i get the frustrating message that 'Windows cannot uninstall thid device as it may be required to boot the computer, I can't roll back because there is nothing to roll back to and the updated drivers from GeForce don't work either. Now I was reading something where someone else had exactly the same problem as I have and the fix offered (and what I need help with) is this..

UAA bus driver installed? if yes make.
Disable 'unknown device'
Disable 'Microsoft Uaa bus driver'
Uninstall 'Uaa bus driver'
Rescan devices
Install new driver

Where do I look for all of this, in device manager..?
A translation would be very much appreciated

Hello again
Forget that last post, I've sorted it. My aged memory suddenly remembered where I've seen this before and the fix for this particular problem is this..

Open 'Device Manager'

Disable 'Unknown device'
Go to 'view'>> 'Devices by connection'
Find and disable 'Microsoft Uaa bus driver'
Uninstall 'Uaa bus driver'
Then either rescan devices or install the new driver from it's location.

It's just worked for me and I hope this will help others with a similar problem.

Ohhh, the sound of sweet music once more.. :thumbsup:

Regards
Alex

No problem, but perhaps it might be better if it were moved to the Audio forum which I've just been looking at..?
I saw it after I'd already posted.

Alex
