New hardware not detected by Sue
Hi, I am trying to install a usb wireless modem on my Vista Home laptop. When I first attached the device, the hardware manager detected it, but as the recommended manufacturer's install is to load the software first, I selected "Try again later" (or similar) when the box popped up.

CPU busy by PhilTheGap[_2_]
Hi, my CPU is 100% used by hardware interrupts just after the set up of Vista. The drivers are all running. Vista has been updated. What is the simple way to discover the culprit ? I can start by unplug everything but what can I do if to see if the processor (AMD 64 3800+) is responsible ? Best regards
