Windows 7: Base system device missing

Base system device missing

Hi guys,

I have had to reformat one of the machines here at work. After getting everything installed I found under the device manager that there is an exclamation mark next to a "Base System Device driver".
I've been searching the web but I'm getting conflicting answers as to what to do.

The machine is a Sony VPCJ128FG running Win7 Ultimate.

J series huh? Have you accounted for the bluetooth, card reader, and that weird 'magic gate' thing they all have for sony pro stick support?

Hey Meguscreed,

To be honest no. Bluetooth is showing up as fine but I'll have to check the others though.

Thanks :-)
