PCI Simple Communications Controller RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everyone. I need some help and I have two questions. I don't know if this is the right place to ask it either. But here I go:

    Here is some basic information:                                  
    • I have Windows Vista Home Basic.
    • I recently installed a "new" copy of it using my CD. ( Copied over the existing Vista OS ) 
    • Windows said they copied all the files from the old system and made them into a folder called " Windows.old"
    Anyway, whenever I move a window around using the mouse, while running music in the background ( from the internet ) , the sound degrades and gets muffled. - Why does this happen? [ First Question ]

    Also, I ran the "Reliability and Performance Monitor" and here are the results:


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Warnings
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Error

    Symptom: Device drivers are not installed.
    Cause: A driver has not been installed for this device, preventing it from working properly.
    Details: The device driver for PCI Simple Communications Controller has not been installed. This device will not be available until the correct device driver is installed.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Warning

    Symptom: The system is experiencing excessive paging
    Cause: Available memory on the system is low.
    Details: The total physical memory on the system is not capable of handling the load.

    - So, what should I do? [ Second Question ]

    HOPE SOMEONE CAN HELP ME!


    P.s. If I do not need the "windows.old" folder, should I delete it?
