Why is my system detecting new hardware?

Question

recently, "new hardware found" comes on at startup, it goes though, finds several new items, then finishes the the startup. This laptop is right out of the box, I haven"t made any hardware changes since I bought it. I have done

system restores back to a restore point where it was working ok, but it keeps doing the found new hardware thing. I reloaded the all factory drivers, downloaded new updated drivers and updated bios, but it is still loading the new hardware thing at start. HELP Please

Joe.

Joe,

Im sorry you are getting frusterated, this could be internal hardware being detected Try going into control panel, then device manager and see if there are any error symbols such as an exclamation point, or question mark under any hardware devices This may also be an easy fix such as downloading a driver for one of your devices Contact me via email if you need additional assistance.
