Found New Hardware Wizard


  • How do you reset the FOund New Hardware Wizard so that it will pop up when you try to install a USB device?  This device requires a CD in the player to run and the FOund New Hardware Wizard has to pop up to find it.


    And before anyone says anything this was accidentally turned off by a technician during software install. (should have RTFM!!)


    Any help appreciated.

  • What do you mean reset? What I'm guessing is that you mean you want the new hardware found wizard to show up when you plug in a new device? Well usually it will work if you replug it (Unplug, plug in)

    If you're trying to install the hardware (or device), then go to Start > Control Panel > Device Manager and you will see your deice with a yellow circle with a question mark, and you can install it by rightclicking it and choosing install
