hi there,

The driver for this device requested a resource that Windows does not know how to handle. (Code 5)

To fix this, click Update Driver to update the driver for this device.

This code indicates that there was a device failure due to the lack of an arbitrator.

If a device requests a resource type for which there is no arbitrator, you receive this error code.

use Device Manager to remove the device and then run the Add New Hardware tool in Control Panel
