Can anyone suggest a reason why my computer's O.S. (Dell laptop, WinXP Profess., SP3) would not recognize a device driver file when the computer recognizes the hardware device correctly, then asks for the driver file (which is the correct file for the hardware) but can't seem to either locate it on the computer or "accept" it? I have posted this question in the "Hardware" forum, but got no replies. Then I started to think that it might not be a hardware problem since the hardware (a USB wireless adapter for WiFi) can be installed in my other computer but maybe some issue with my laptop's operating system. I have not had this type of issue with any other added hardware in the past.
