    Settings tab in sources of a device in device manager greyed out!


    Hi people


    It would seem that my device manager is not functioning as it should. When i want to adjust settings in the "sources" tab of any device in the device manager, it is grey, and I cannot use it.


    Do I need some kind of authorization?


    Please help

    :)

    Power Management Tab in Device Manager

    Hi, some other ideas:

    Please see both #68 (the fix you've tried) and in particular the comment in #69 here:
    Allow or Prevent Devices to Wake Computer in Windows 10

    One such thread suggested an old ethernet drive could give rise to the tab missing.

    Another suggested:
    https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/...1-7cd9a4fe035f

    Some threads suggest that anything preventing sleep may conflict with this.

    Is the device allowed to wake the PC?

    Network devices listed under Unknown in Device Manager


    I have a Dell Inspiron M731R laptop upgraded from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 Home 64-Bit that suddenly quit connecting to the home network. Was using wireless, so switched to an Ethernet cable, but still no luck. I just discovered that ALL of the network-related devices are now listed under an "Unknown" tab in the Device Manager. A check of properties of each item in that folder says they are all working properly, but that obviously isn't the case. I tried uninstalling each of the 4 items, but when they are recognized again they still show up under the Unknown tab. Any suggestions would be welcome.
