When i reboot my machine i get 3 different pop up boxes asying that drivers are missing. When i run the 'wizard' it can not find the drivers for the devices. The first is a PCI Communications device, and the other 2 are 'unknown devices'. I am running 98SE and all these devices are listed under 'other devices' in my device manager. Can anyone tell me exactly how i can find out what these drivers are for?

In device manager highlight the PCI Communication device (this is referring to your modem) and click properties. Select update or install the modem device drivers. Have your Win98SE OS on hand it may ask for this. If ask to reboot, do so. You should see that the(!) is no longer there and the device is in its proper place and not in 'unknown devices'. If you are getting a (x) on the properties section of these devices the device has been disabled and you should enable it to make it active. For each other device in the unknown section you should see a small description of what the device is referring to. Re-install the device drivers for each device as stated above. This should help with your problem.
