Device drivers problem ...
Vista seems unable do "see" it's own drivers ...
Whatever device i'm trying to connect Vista is
inable to locate drivers even if I know that the drivers
are included in vista install (like HP 1210 printer). On
clean install Vista recognizes it ian installs but later it's
not ... Does any body know some sollution?

Of course ... I think my Vista lost a "knowledge" where
to find it's own drivers. It's unable to install device even
if it has drivers included in Vista release ...

In this case, I can't think of anything else except do a RESTORE...

I had same problem. You need to go to the Browse for Drivers screen and tell
Vista to look in C:\windows

Same thing here. Thanks for the tip, worked for me. Vista couldn't find the
"Volume manager" for my disk. Damn thing.

Surely there would be a simple way of fixing this properly? It's a pain to
have to do this everytime I install a normal piece of hardware.

I'm posting this advice often in the hope that others will begin
to pass it along:

The basic problem is that C:\windows\inf\INFCACHE.1 becomes
corrupted (I don't know the reason). The workaround is just
to delete that file.

The one trick to know is that you need to edit the permissions
on that file to grant Full Control to the Users group before you
will be permitted to delete it.
