    Intel MEI Device Manager exclamation mark


    I asked this in another thread but I think it got lost in there!

    I have an issue with Intel MEI in the sense that often it has an exclamation mark against it in DM.
    I am not sure which are the correct drivers to install as there seems to be so many out there.

    There are at least 3 obvious ones - 1) the ones installed by Windows, 2) the ones on the Intel site and 3) the ones on the ASUS support site (recently updated) for my motherboard.and I'm sure there are others.
    I have had BSOD issues and I'm pretty sure it has something to do with the MEI drivers, as when I have 1) above installed, then I occasionally have a problem. Since installing/uninstalling various, I currently have the ASUS version installed. They are 2047.100.0.1039 and are newer than any of the others.
    The good news is that I haven't had a problem since I installed them, however, the bad news is that I have an exclamation mark in Device Manager as you can see from the attached image. I can get rid of that by going into properties for the device, uninstalling and rebooting. However, the exclamation mark comes back some time later. Installing a different (older) set of MEI drivers, i.e. 2) above, also removes the exclamation mark, if I do that, the BSOD issue tends to come back. So, I don't know what to do!As always, any help appreciated.

    Is it safe to delete items in Device Manager marked with "exclamation mark"

    After Win7 to Win10 upgrade in Device Manager I have noticed 3 items marked with exclamation mark. I can't figure it out to which devices are these yellow signs belonging. Is it safe to delete these 3 entries from Device Manager. Must I select "Uninstall"
    or can I simply delete entries. Thank you!

    I have un-installed three "Unknown Devices" marked with exclamation mark. So far everything is working fine.
