I have tried the install disk for vista and it tells me there is a device driver missing but i do not know which one and cannot figure out which


I am assuming that you need a driver for something that's missing from the computer and your not trying to install Vista.

If you go to "Device Manager" and have a look in the list for a device with a question mark next to it, that will tell you what the driver pertains to unless it says unknown device. Unknown device can usually mean the chipset or an add on.

If you right click on the device and select update driver then it may install it for you.
You can get to Device Manager by right clicking Computer, select Manage and then Device Manager.

Alternatively you can perform a Microsoft Update and see if that detects the device.

If you need any more help please post back.

How to remove unknown device for good from vista?

Any IDE controllers you have are going to be integrated into your motherboard, so there is no way to really remove them. Download a copy of SIW. Use it to find the make and model number of your motherboard. From there go to the manufacturer's website and download the drivers for it. Next uninstall the unknown IDE device, and install the drivers. Often times it will prompt you to restart after they are installed, if not restart manually. Windows will then detect the IDE driver again, but this time you will have a driver for it.

Compaq D510 sff Dma problem

Those might have been your specs but if you have updated windows some of your drivers autamatically change. Try rolling back the drivers or updating them again. The drivers change frequently when windows hot fixes are dowenn loaded your setting that you had and are trying to set it at are the ones when the system was new.
