Sup Everyone,

My son has a Dell Dimension 4600 desktop computer. Each time he turns on his computer he gets the "Found new Hardware" prompt. However, he isnt sure why its popping up or know which drivers to look for.

According to the PCI Device Properties the details tab indicate the device id as,

PCI\VE_10DE&DEV_0BE3&SUBSYS_00000000&REV_A1\5&28662550&0&0110F0

According to www.pcidatabase.com we get the following results;

0x0BE3 Chip Number: NV34
Chip Description: Riva 128
Notes: Driver for Windows XP

According to wiki, Riva 128 is an old video card Released in late 1997 by Nvidia, the RIVA 128, or "NV3", was one of the first consumer graphics processing units.

My sons current video card is a PNY Verto NVIDIA GeForce 8400GS 512MB.

However, we have been unlucky finding drivers for this device.

Can anyone offer any assistance?

Thanks in advance

Try looking in the Device Manager to see if there are any yellow circles with an exclamation mark in it. If there is this usually indicates that there is a driver problem. If this is a native driver, one that is part of the operating system, you can click on the + in the box to the left of the device to expand the component, double click on it and a page will open with tabs on the top. Click on the Driver tab, when it opens uninstall the driver. If this is a native driver it will be replaced the next time you start the computer.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

On the back of your sons desktop computer is a Dell Service Tag.
You should be able to go to here http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/19/DriversHome/NeedProductSelection?fkey=Drivers_PS and enter the service tag and see a listing of the Dell drivers for that computer.

What I found for that was that PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0BE3&SUBSYS_00000000&REV_A1 = Microsoft UAA Bus Driver for High Definition Audio

Is the sound working?

Good Luck

I dont see any yellow exclamation marks but i do see a yellow question mark under PCI Device which is the issue im trying to fix.

I tried that yesterday, i was offered a list of "recommeded" drivers to update but wasnt sure which one I had to select. I am not clear on what the PCI Device is. With respect to your question, yes the sound on his computer is fine.

If you click on the + in the box next to the question mark it will expand the list of devices. Please let us know what you find there.

After looking closely, the device did have a yellow question mark with a yellow exclamation point on top of it. However, when i attempted to click on the driver tab to uninstall the driver I received a message indicating that there were no drivers to roll back. :(

I then restored the pc to an earlier date and the yellow exclamation point went away but i still have the yellow question mark.

If you click on the + in the box next to the question mark it will expand the list of devices. Please let us know what you find there.

The device that appears when i click on the + is "PCI Device".

Try downloading your video drivers from this site.

Go down to step 3) and enter the video card information ( PNY Verto NVIDIA GeForce 8400GS 512MB.) Click on Search, when the drivers are found the download button will appear, click on it to download the drivers.
