    Other Devices / Unknown device


    Hi Users ,

    On a Sony Vaio SVT1312b4E Notebook I have two unknown devices that are missing drivers and I haven't a clue what they are . The laptop is working fine on build 14279 .
    I don't use the SD card reader so it might be that but not sure . I just like to see no exclamation marks in device manager . I have clicked on "search for updated drivers " but cant find any .

    See below. Thanks

  2. unknown "other devices"

    Hi,

    Unknown devices usually show up in the Device Manager when Windows is unable to identify a piece of hardware and attempts to provide a driver for it. An unknown device isn’t just unknown — it’s not functioning until you install the right driver. Most of
    the time Windows is able to identify and download drivers automatically. In cases where it is unable to do so, you'll have to identify and look for the driver yourself.

    Follow these steps to locate the Unknown Device:

    1. Press Windows Key + X and select Device Manager.

    2. You’ll find unknown devices and other non-functioning devices under Other devices. Each device with a problem has a little yellow exclamation mark over its icon.

    To check the Hardware ID of a device, follow these steps:

    1. Open the Device Manager.

    2. In the Device Manager, right-click the device, and choose Properties in the popup menu.

    3. Tap the Details tab.

    4. Select the Hardware IDs in the drop-down list.

    5. Search the web for the Hardware ID using your browser. You should be able to get the name of the piece of hardware associated with the unknown device.

    6. Get the driver for the device and install it normally.

    Let us know if you require further assistance.

    Regards.

    Have a look at the details tab in the Properties window and then paste the Hardware ID into google and see if that will identify what it is.
