This applies mainly to early motherboards, more commonly referred to as "legacy" equipment.Some motherboards have a BIOS which allows you to delete the ESCD information from the BIOS after an older legacy card has been removed from the motherboard.As the name suggests, the goal is to be able to just plug in a new device and immediately be able to use it, without complicated setup maneuvers.A form of Plug and Play was actually first made available on the EISA and MCA buses many years ago.Dealing with these issues can be a tremendously confusing, difficult and time-consuming task.In fact, many users have stated that this is the single most frustrating part of owning and maintaining a PC, or of upgrading the PC's hardware.
