But driver update is the last tool I suggest using. If you keep at this you learn to find the driver from the maker first.
Also, CODE 39 is one of the well discussed failures. If it's working don't fix this. Also 4GB on 32 bit OSes tend to do this a lot. Chalk it up to bad choices made years ago.
In my device manager under storage controllers, I have an IDE controller listed with error message 39 (Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing.) I've tried running the driver update but a driver can't be located.
Here's the weird part; I tried uninstalling & reinstalling (by scanning for new hardware in device manager) the controller and when it reinstalled, the name of the hardware was completely different from the first time I uninstalled it. For example; Before uninstall it'll be something like AQXFHYW2 IDE Controller & after reinstall it'll be a completely different series of random numbers & letters. In the properties of the controller, the driver provider, date, version etc. are all unknown.
Anyone ever hear of anything like this? Thanks in advance for any help
