Sometimes I see a message when XP boots up which says:
"Windows has finished installing new hardware".

How can I tell which hardware device it is referring to?

From memory there does not seem to be any useful entries in any of
the Event Viewer's logs. :-(

Post the contents of those messages here as far as you think that they
are related to the problem. Or feed an Internet search engine with the
info.
