Help required please.
I have a IBM NetVista. Type:8305-18G
Just reinstalled Windows ME on it and there is a problem in device manager. It shows PCI System Management Bus and PCI Universal Serial Bus with question marks against both.
Can anyone help me resolve this problem.
Thanks in advance,
George

Thanks for your reply and the link. What exactly do I download from the IBM site to resolve my problem ? I am not a 100% pc wizard yet.
Thanks,
George

Just use your WinME disk...
Goto Device Manager and click UPDATE driver for each...point to the CD to install.

Try downloading Core Chipset drivers.
Then try the Intel Ethernet Drivers only.
Install them and then report back after a reboot.

Have you tried updating the drivers via the Windows Updates website?

Hi Geekgirl, I followed the link you gave me and downloaded/installed as instructed. In device manager I still have PCI Universal Serial Bus with a yellow question mark against it only.
(Incidently this is below other devices)
At the bottom of device manager I see Universal Serial Bus Controllers. There are three controllers and all have green circles with white ? in them. The three usb root hubs look OK.

George

Go to and bookmark this page, it's a bit easier to follow through for all your system drivers.

I'd say, update the BIOS first, just to make sure you have the latest one. You can use the updater from Windows.

Yet the problem I suspect you have is that the USB controllers you have, are USB 2.0 controllers. According to the site I gave above, USB2.0 is not supported by Windows Millennium, you need at minimum Windows 2000 for that. Windows 2000 was also the original OS that came on this PC.

That there are no USB2.0 drivers for Windows Millennium is quite possible, since WinME was long put out with the garbage when USB2.0 came into support for OSes. WinME itself will at least not have any knowledge of these drivers, or try to emulate the USB ports as USB1.1 (which they aren't).

You can try to download and install these latest Intel chipset drivers, though. Download it, run the executable, read the readme for more info.
