Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad R50e Notebook ?

Another device installation is underway...

\015 Hello,\015\012\015\012I have this laptop, and I?ve used its built-in system restore (IBM access - the blue button) to format and initial all system properties.\015\012\015\012After it finished formatting and restoring, the Plug & Play feature doesn't work. \015\012Also, whenever I tried to run the add hardware it display the error message:\015\012\015\012"You can install only one device at a time.\015\012"Another device installation is underway, when it is finished you can try this wizard again."\015\012\015\012Restart / safe mode / killing some process won?t help.\015\012\015\012Any suggestions? What can I do? \015\012Please help!!\015\012\015\012Thanks in advance,\015\012Kim\015

Answers :

I think maybe in the bios the UPNP feature is possibly dissabled, as may also be the usb controllers in the device manager.\015\012\015\012For some reason manufacturers tend to dissable the use of PNP and wireless features as factory default, which your notebook will be set at, although why I have no idea!
Go to run then type regedit then ok
go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/SETUP, click on setup.
find the FActoryPreinstallinProgress key & double click it.
Chnage the value data to 0.

Note: You should always backup your registry before making any changes!!
