PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version: Windows XP Pro
Problem Application Name & Version:
Problem Hardware Make & Model:PSX-USB ADApter (don't know model sorry)
Error Messages: "A service installation in thsi INF is invalid"



* My computer is a Advent 3056 win98 to win xp upgrade**

hi i recently bought a PSX to Usb adapter, basically you can use a a playstation controller for games on your pc, i plugged it into my computer via usb, and it detected it straight away, it started searching my computer for the drivers and it found one then it asked please insert the cd supplied with the adapter, so i did that, it started installing and the suddenly it stopped and displayed "cannot install this hardware" "a service installaition file in thhis INF is Invalid" and so in device manager this adapter is listed under "game controllers" with a excalamtion mark. now my friend has also this adapter and he also runs win xp (i run pro, he runs home edition) when he plugged his one in it installed straight away and had no problem, and in device manager it was listed under "Human Interface Devices", mine was not for some reason, i tried my adapter on his pc and it worked fine so its not a fault with the hardware, is there anything i can do to make it a HID or even to make it work Smiley
                thank you

You can go into the bios and try to free up some IRQ's you may be having a conflict.
