WIN XP HOME - Windows opens @ bootup, and "Found New Hardware: Network Controller" dialog shows up; have no idea to what it is referring; attempt to do the update or whatever it's asking for; always comes up with a negative response.
Go into Device Manager and there it is -- the only yellow question mark; attempt to open or go to properties and everyone is all innocent, oh-no-we-know-nothing-about-this-we-have-no-information ... dah-dah-dah.
Since I've never been an accomplished seer related to anything Windows -- which MSoft obviously believes is a requirement for using its products, I have no idea why this annoying You Have New Hardware business continues to intrude. Deleting @ Device Manager changed nothing.
So ... is there truly a treasure at the end of this hunt? Or, since in typical MS fashion, the "error message" gives absolutely no useful information, is there someone out there who might enlighten me about how to be done with this thing?
