    Hi Chris,
    No we didn’t come across this problem during our installation, however we have ATi cards running in said machine…

    Perhaps they are unrelated, do you have the latest service packs installed for your nVidia device?

    It’s a real shame that we don’t have any further info on this for you. However, there does seem to be quite a few Google related search’s about the nVidia WDM AV Crossbar

    Thanks for this, couldn’t find these drivers any where. I also had problems with the zip file, but the individual downloads worked perfectly. Many thanks again from a fellow welshman.

    No problem Charlie :)
    Not sure why the zip archive is posing problems for some, seems to work ok on XP, Vista and 7.

    I’ll try re-zipping it on 7 and see if that solves the problem.

    Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

    I am running WinXP SP3 with an ATI X1650 video card. I have had an exclamation point in my Device Manager under “Unknown Device” with the following ID ACPIAWY00012&DABA3FF&0 for the past two years.
    Your solution worked like a charm. Wish I had found your site earlier.

    Again thanks loads!

    XP Media Center install on HP Pavilion a1357c. This does work! Just spent the last two hours tracking down this file. Why can’t HP just have it on the website like the rest of the drivers? Thank you for posting it here!!!

    Worked for me on an HP a1320n with XPMCE. Praise Jebus. I though I was going to have to shoot my way out of this repair job.
