  • Normally you can lookup %windir%\inf or Windows should show you the list of available drivers for your device, or you can look at catalog.update.microsoft.com; however, you'd rarely find this driver over at MSFT catalog.

    I'll look if I have this driver in my setup tomorrow when I get to my WDP PC.

  • I am only assuming here: could you possibly install the ACPI device driver. What if you add this device?

    I know that isn't shading much light onto resolving your problem, but still.
