Unable to detect PCI devices
Hi, earlier this week I made the decision to finally switch to Linux. I just completed an installation of Ubuntu's most recent version. I downloaded the LiveCD and installed it without any real problems.
I'm discovering now though that none of my PCI cards or USB devices are being detected by the system. I have a built in ethernet card and a wireless PCI network card, neither of which are detected by the system. Additionally, when I insert my USB flash disk, nothing happens. My graphics card seems to function fine however (its an AGP card).
When I enter lspci in the terminal, it just goes straight to the next line - no real response. Same goes for lsusb. Also, when I type sudo lshw, it displays info about my CPU, HD and cd drives but no enteries are listed for usb or pci. It does, however, list my CPU as a Micro-Star International MS-6366 (not sure if thats helpful).
Here are some of the dmesg return, which I hope will be helpful to someone in order to debug my problem:
Also, when I start up the computer it tries to load up my PCMCIA drivers, but it says PCMCIA not present - again, not sure if that helps.
PnPBios: Disabled by ACPI PNP
PCI: Using ACPI for IRQ routing
PCI: Bridge: 0000:00:01.0
IO window: disabled
MEM window: dc000000-ddffffff
PREFETCH window: dc000000-ddffffff
isapnp: No Plug & Play device found
I really appreciate anyone's help. I would really like to get my system working, but if I can't find a solution soon I will have to return to Windows :(
