Got the above error when i insert a firewire card with via chipset. I have update the firewire driver by picking a list of device driver from my computer and though it prompt me to restart but yet it still shows the yellow exclamation mark and next i update it through online, same thing it prompt me to restart which i did but sad to say it shows the yellow exclamation again

When i check under properties>general tab, it says the following

If you want to use this device, you will need to disable one of the other devices on this system.

You need to restart your computer before the changes you made to this device will take effect.

Click 'Check for solutions' to send data about this device to Microsoft and to see if there is a solution available.

As far as i know the irq in bios setup is all set as auto and the total there's 4 pci slot and only 1 that is using, so how can it be resources being used up??  :think:


Fyi i'm using Msi P35 neo3 mobo with vista ultimate sp1

Under device manager> VIA OCHI Compliant IEEE 1394 host controller> right click it and choose update driver follow by choosing the option of search automatically for updated software (window would search your computer and the internet for the lastest driver software for your device)

Once done i reboot and next bingo.... the yellow exclamation was no longer there, infact it was quite wierd when i try updating online, as the very first time it doesn't work but wouldn't know why the second time it does   ;-))
