That is really weird. You got to find out what that device is.
Have you tried checking the Hardware IDs for it?

Deep in the recesses of my ancient brain I recall dealing with this before, but I can't remember what it was. If it comes to me I will post back!

Hi maxie,

I tried by following AMD's instructions here:

How-To Uninstall AMD Catalyst Drivers From A Windows Based System

I didn't know they had an uninstall tool. Were do I get it?

I believe the uninstall tool is in the CCC (Catalyst Control Center).

Did you get a chance to check the Hardware ID's?

There is an uninstall tool in the program. I've tried that too.

I did check the Hardware IDs, but I'm afraid I don't understand what to do with them, or what they mean.

Here is what you do:

There are only two 4-digit codes you are concerned with. See that first blue highlighted line? Your VEN code is 1407, and your DEV code is 8000. You make note of these.

Then you go here:
PCI Vendor and Device Lists
and enter the codes (one at a time) in the appropriate fields.

We find that the VENdor (manufacturer) is "Lava Computer Manufacturing Inc."
And that the DEVice is (most likely) a "Lava Parallel"

There are many other devices with a DEV code of 8000, but that is the only one by Lava Manufacturing.

So now I got to ask, do you have a parallel port on that machine?

Why, yes I do, and it's a Lava. It's coming out right now. Stupid thing never worked right anyway.

Out it comes and I'll let you know how it goes.

Windows 7 met a dinosaur and freaked out!

Be sure to uninstall it (probably Standard VGA too) in Device Manager before yanking it.
