Just installed NIS2011. One issue I notice is that the card slots on my Dell monitor are no longer active. Here's what the Device Manager looks like (the card slots are listed under Portable Devices):
Has anyone seen this issue before?

Thanks Tywin7. The uninstall/reboot/rediscover worked to restore those card slots. I'm not even sure if NIS 2011 was the culprit. After noticing the issue, I first uninstalled NIS 2011 but still had the problem. I then did the uninstall/reboot/rediscover to restore the card slots, then installed NIS 2011, rebooted, and didn't see any further problems

The "Scan for Hardware Changes" was the first thing I tried. However I got a series of 3 beeps for each of the four "slots" that it tried to fix. In fact it was the "beeps" that first alerted me that there was a problem. These were not POST beeps, but happened when my Windows desktop was just starting to be displayed. I didn't know what they were coming from. I just happened to look in the Device Manager and saw that that's where the problem was. Glad it's working again.

Does the beep sound like da da da dum? I mean run the scan for hardware changes AFTER uninstallation. That way you wouldn't have to reboot the computer... But if reboot works, hey!
