Hi, can someone help me, I know there is a fix for this.

I have a few devices that keep automatically disabling themselves everytime I restart my laptop. I am running XP pro on an Acer Ferrari Laptop. I normally use my wireless network to access the internet which is fine, however I also use a wired connection at work to access the internet. I have to go to Device manager on every startup and enable the device in order to use the network connection. Also, my built in SD card reader needs to be enabled every time too.

The following are the devices under Device Manager that disable everytime the computer is restarted...

PCMCIA adapter called "Generic CardBus Controller"
PCMCIA and Flash Memory Device called "Texas Instruments PCIxx12 Integrated FlashMedia Controller"
IEEE 1394 Bus host controllers "Texas Instruments OHCI Compliante IEEE 1394 Host Controler"

I would appreciate any input on this problem!

Happy Holidays to all!
