    Drivers Log


    Long time lurker, first time poster. Great site, solved a lot of my problems with cranky Win 10!

    Problem: I have a driver that loads late in the boot process. On every boot, the Win 10 boot process is interrupted about half way through by the "Found new Hardware" notification sound. It then continues to boot normally with no errors.

    Question: Is there a log file that states the drivers that are loaded, and the time they loaded? If not, is there a 3rd party software that can give me that information like the old Dr Watson?

    I figure the hardware driver making the "new hardware" sound is probably the last one to load, and I can find which one it is by observing the time it loads.

    FYI, I have unplugged every USB and other peripheral device with no luck. I have no flags in Device Manager, even the hidden devices have no errors.

    Thanks for that.

    Didn't work. Seemed to install OK, but couldn't launch it afterward, even after a re boot.

    Hmm, I am sorry to hear that. I have not used it for a while but at the time it worked as advertised.
