Base System Device Which Driver?

    I just bought a used Dell Latitude D800 and have installed Windows XP
    Pro and Service Pack 2. I have downloaded the appropriate drivers from
    Dell's support site and installed them. However, Device Manager still
    shows one big yellow question mark item under Other devices which is
    labeled Base System Device. What piece of hardware is this and which
    driver do I need to install?

    Thanks for any help.

    Did you install the chipset drivers first ?

    Thanks for the tip. That was it. I had installed the chipset driver,
    but not the smartcard driver. Once I installed the smartcard driver,
    everything was fine.
