Hello again, I was running my tuneup utilities and it said that a device is not working properly. It is the VIA OHCI Compliant IEEE 1394 Host Controller. I went to the device manager and tried to update the driver etc...and nothing changed. I was wondering if someone could tell me what this is for first of all and if I need to fix it. I was using a wireless connection but I am not anymore. I am not hard wired to my connection. I am not sure if that has anything to do with the driver. Thank you in advance to anyone that can help me.

It's not clear from your post...
Is anything not working on your computer?

It is the driver for Firewire. If your system has a Firewire port that you never use, or if there is no physical Firewire socket on the system, then you can probably ignore it.

So-called tuneup utilities can be wrong - is there a bang (!) for the device in Device Manager?

No Broni, nothing seems to be wrong with anything that I can see. Yes Platypus there is a bang (!) for the device in Device Manager. I guess I can just ignore it for now then, thanks so much for your help!

If you are not using it...just disable it in the BIOS...it then will not show up in Device Manager.

I agree with Louis, if you don't use the Firewire port or if the system doesn't have a physical socket, then disabling it in the BIOS is probably the easiest solution for now, assuming the Firewire chip is on the motherboard, not on the likes of a PCI card.
