Hey
I keep getting the following error on my laptop's event log. I have it running XP Pro. For the last few weeks it has been running kinda slow, with the mouse disappearing every now and again.

"The driver has detected that device \Device\Ide\IdePort0 has old or out-of-date firmware. Reduced performance may result."

I think the solution would be to do a BIOS update, which isn't that hard..so I might do that when I get some free time:p but I'd like some ideas on it please.

Any ideas?

Jamie.

Yes, all you need to do us update the device software and it will be fine. Thats pretty much all you can do. Unless you replace the device.

lol....the mobo I got in here at the moment is a REPLACEMENT:D
I'm gonna go and upgrade the BIOS and chipset drivers, as newer software versions are available for both.
