RE: Hardware not found
Does Device Manager have an entry for any of these devices? If it does,
then Device Manager likely lists the hardware as unknown devices. Device
Manager includes procedures for troubleshooting and for finding drivers.
However, it won't find drivers when there are no Vista compatible drivers
available. When buying hardware, always verify that they are compatible with
Vista before buying.
