  1. device does not show on devices


    I signed on to my microsoft account using my HP laptop , HOWEVER I only see my desktop on the list of devices. I have gone arounf in circles with codes, passwords, etc for 4 and a half hours. My laptop says I am signed on to my Microsoft account. But it is not on my device list. Why should this be so difficult to add a device to my microsoft account?? I need to install software and I CANNOT do it until microsoft account recognizes my laptop. Please help me in this seeming simple task. Thank you in advance.

    :)

  2. My laptop is not showing other devices or unknown devices

    Hi,

    My name is Angel. I am an Independent Advisor. Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.

    Some devices might be listed under hidden devices in Device Manager, I suggest you to open Device Manager then click on View option and click on Show hidden devices. Once it is done, check whether you can find the device.

    As an initial step of troubleshooting, I suggest you to try connecting the device with other USB ports and check if it is detected (If you are connecting through USB).

    Also, try updating the USB drivers and check if it helps. Follow the below steps.

    -Open Device Manager.

    -Find and expand Universal Serial Bus controllers.

    -Right-click on each driver listed and click on Update Driver Software

    -Restart the system after updating the drivers.

    -Try connecting the device and check if the issue still persists.

    Hope the information provided is useful. If the issue persists, reply here and we will be glad to help you.

    Angel.

  3. X800 GTO2 = Unknown Device

    I flashed the BIOS on my X800 GTO2 last night and it is listed in the Device Manager as an Unknown Device. Is this normal?

    device does not show on devices

    GPU-Z device list enumeration, device order?

    Specifically, how are the the GPUs listed in the drop down sorted, or determined? Vendor and PCI ID? OS hardware device list? Other?

    Sorry if this was answered somewhere already. Searching for "GPU LIST ORDER" and like terms were not helpful.

    Thanks.
