My Laptop keeps asking for me to install new hardware

I get the found new hardware wizard keeps asking to install new hardware. It asks me if I want to install from a CD or the internet. I don't have a CD so I said yes to internet. The process begin to find the hardware then tells me that it couldn't be found. The item it is trying to find is called: Video Controller.

Do I need this and if so, is it something that I need to purchase and intall by opening the back of the Laptop and what does it do exactly?

How do i install a high speed usb port in my ibm tp 600e and also is this computer wi-fi compatible


Plug an external High-speed USB device to a free USB port your computer.

Allow the "Add New Hardware" wizard to search your system for drivers. Windows Vista would typically ask for a location for the drivers while Windows XP would give you the option of saving your preference.

However, if the device was shipped or sold with an installation CD/DVD, slot it in the CD/DVD drive and choose to search locations you specify for the drivers.

Ask your vendor for the best location to find the drivers on the CD/DVD. To be on the safer side, install the software on the CD/DVD. In most cases, the drivers get copied to the system and automatically attracts a recognition by the 'Add New Hardware' wizard.

When the Hardware installs successfully, launch the software (if any) to configure your device the best way it suits you.

Hope this helps!

WIRELESS ADAPTER


To install your wireless adapter, plug in the wireless card, and put your cd driver into the laptop. Once the adapter is plugged in, your laptop should recognize a new hardware has been installed, and will ask you for a driver (whether to automatically search for it or you can install it yourself. Pick the option of you installing yourself, and put the cd driver in. Then just go through the wizard to install your wireless card. You should be good to go from there! Any other questions, let me know!

That means that it has not recognised the new hardware yet, you need a skilled person to have it recognise or the battery is not compatible to your machine - need to buy a correct battery.
