Found New hardware Wizard error
  

Hi all:
I recently did a re-install of Windows Xp Pro on my hp. pavilion zv6000 laptop, and anytime I turn the laptop on I get first, a balloon pop-up from my task bar saying "Found new hardware. Logical Disk manager". Then I get the "Found New Hardware Wizard" window saying "cannot install this hardware, there was a problem installing this hardware-Logical Disk Manager, an error occured during the installation of the device.the class installer......click finish to close the wizard''. I click finish to close th wizard and I get another pop-up balloon saying that "a problem occured trying to install this hardware.... "

In the device manager, under system devices is an unknown device with a yellow "!" and under its properties I get ROOT\DMIO\0000 in the driver details. This is weird, first it says found new hardware-logical disk manager then, the found new hardware wizard. This happens anytime I turn the system on. If I cannot fix this problem can I atleast stop the Found new hardware wizard from coming up anytime i turn system on. Please help. :confused:

Re: Found New hardware Wizard error

To fix it you must take the LDM drivers out of the startup..
Modify the following keys:

hklm\system\currentcontrolset\services\dmboot\start
hklm\system\currentcontrolset\services\dmio\start
hklm\system\currentcontrolset\services\dmload\start

If the values are 2, change them to 4. 2 is Enabled. 4 is disabled.



You can save the following as a .reg file and just load it into the registry:

LDMFix.reg
-------------------------------------------------------------
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\dmboot]
"Start"=dword:00000004

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\dmio]
"Start"=dword:00000004


[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\dmload]
"Start"=dword:00000004
