I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

I recently installed a new motherboard and processor on my computer and naturally I had to reinstall WINDOWS (XP Pro - I also reinstalled SP1). Everything appears to have gone well and all my previous settings have been retained BUT now there is an unknown device in the Device manager hardward list.
All the peripherals I have installed on my computer are present and accounted for. If I try to remove the mystery device, WINDOWS automatically detects the "new hardware " and trys to install it. But it can neither identify it nor find the appropriate driver. And neither can I.
The computer works fine with the device inactive or disabled and is actually quite speedy so I am tempted to just "leave well enough alone", but in truth I am just too anal retentive for that(LOL).
Is there anyway I can figure out what this is and correct it? If Windows can't figure it out and process of elimination with regard to the known hardward offers no clue, how can I determine what it is? I have been careful to make sure that all the onboard devices that I am not using are disabled in the BIOS SETUP. (I have checked and rechecked ).
The motherboard: ELITE GROUP K7S5A v3.1 gets good reviews on the internet but support is apparently virtually non-existant...so there is little hope for help from that quarter.
I would appreciate it if others would share their ideas on this.

I get a message found new hardware device unknown. This leads to a search for the correct driver which repeats as a loop. The following is the message I receive before this starts. I am operating on Vista and am wondering if this has something to do with Constant Guard that Xfinity is providing?

A:Found New Hardware Device Unknown

newdev.exe is a Device driver software installation.

This file is part of Windows Operating System. It’s a system and hidden file. Newdev.exe is usually located in the %SYSTEM% folder and its usual size is 76,288 bytes.


Have you installed any sort of hardware recently?

Even plugging in a microphone, flash drive, etc?


Try performing a System Restore to a point before the error message began appearing.

I have this thing called HTREE\ROOT\0 on my system. I used tweaking.com's hardware identifier to find it. I am really at a loss here on what to say because I have had my vehicle stolen and I was moving and had valuable documents ie birth certificate....address's ect. ect. I know I need to report this all to financial institutions but whoever has been messing with me on the internet has cost me tons of dollars. They are somehow able to steal my data (i have to use mobile data b/c I lost my home) and waste countless hours of just frustrating that heck out of me. it's to the point I have almost lost my sanity. So ya can anyone shed some light on the HTREE\ROOT\0 thing?

I upgraded to a new motherboard and processor a few weeks ago. The motherboard in question is an ECS K7S5A v.3.
Everything seemed to go pretty well, except that Windows (XP Professional) finds an "unknown device" and tries and then fails to identify or properly install it.
I have gone over all the peripherals and add-ons and there is nothing I cannot account for, so I can't identify it either.
It may be related to the modem somehow ( HSP56 PCI Micromodem) because if I disable the mystery device and uninstall the modem, windows does not find the modem. If I enable the device, it installs the modem. If I disable the mystery device with the modem installed, windows installs another copy.

To my further consternation, the mystery device is using resources, including its own IRQ setting:
I/O Range: 02E8-02EE
IRQ: 03

...while IRQ 5 is shared by 4 devices:
PCI to USB host controller
Network Card

I have tried moving the PCI cards to different slots according to suggestions on a site about the motherboard, but nothing changed except that the modem switched from COM Port 3 to COM Port 4.

In addition, some problems with the dial-up modem have revealed themselves which I find more troubling because it really detracts from the functionality of the computer.

The modem appears to work. Within Windows and other programs all indications are that it is working properly. The telephony function works. It can dial a number and connect. (Speakerphone sof... Read more

What am I missing here? I bought a Mitsumi external usb floppy drive on eBay. Plug it in either an Intel or nVidia chipset desktop machine with XP SP-2 and I get the Found New Hardware and Unknown Device boxes at the toolbar. This is confirmed in Device Manager. The enclosed floppy is a model D353G. The enclosure is marked "Generic USB FDD (UD-376)." The software known as "USBDeview" can tell me little about it, but it does see the firmware as "1.03" and lists vendor and product ids.

Since I shouldn't need USB drivers for XP with SP-2, am I missing the obvious, or have I been screwed by a zealous seller? tia

Hi all,
For the last several weeks now on startup on my laptop running Vista I keep getting a pop up stating new hardware has been detected and do I want to install the driver for it. I select yes windows looks for a driver but cannot find one. I have looke in device manager for anything that is amiss. And under other devices there is the yellow mark stating that there is a problem. The only thing I can find out is that it is a plug & play item, no specific name or anything to tell me what it maybe. When I select Properties for the said device the details I am given are \Device\00000025 and that it is not configured correctly. Is there anyway I could find out what this is ? Or should I uninstall it and reboot, and hope that the problem gets fixed on startup.
Thanks. Wizzkid

I have just finished formatting two computers, and finished installing all of the device drivers that I had disks for. However, on one of the computers I am still getting two alerts within Device Manager, and on the other computer, I am getting one alert. They are as follows:

Computer #1

PCI Simple Communications Device
USB Controller

Computer #2

Unknown Device

I assume that the PCI Simple Communications Device is a modem, which I do not have a driver for. I don't know what model of modem I am using, so is there a generic device driver available for that?

Any help locating, or working out, these drivers would be greatly appreciated.

A:Solved: Missing Hardware Drivers - Unknown Devices

Howdy TW.87...

You could always downlaod and install Everest Click Me and check the computer summary and see if it will reconise the Unknown devices that are installed on the system...

Then just match what it sees with what is already installed, when you find one that Everest sees that isn't installed, then download the drivers for that device...

For the USB controller, are there any USB devices attached to the system ?

If so...that might be what it is seeing as a controller and you will need to download and install the drivers for them, otherwise you may need to download and install the chipset drivers for the motherboard...

Title is a little misleading, my apologies.
There is indeed one unknown device, its unknown to me. And a little googling didn't help me uncover the mystery.
The second issue with a driver is probably going to be simple for someone else, but searching through the website has only served to confuse me. I can't find the books to give any more information than what I provide. (Screen shot below) The devise is a power box come surge protector. I could take a picture if necessary. I have a disc but the drivers wont load into Windows 7.
I'm not savvy with computer talk so please forgive a girl for being vague, if I am at all. You can throw the book at me or hit me with a wet noodle if necessary
But thanks for any help

Here's my problems:

1. I am to fix this computer for a friend of mine. It's a HP Pavilion 6735 KR.
2. My idiot friend lost the HP Recovery CDs that came with it.
3. It has Windows ME installed, and I want to put Windows 98SE on it instead.
4. Windows ME boots to a BSD in both Normal and Safe Modes (corrupt or missing ./iosubsystem).
5. I have only a vague idea what the Graphics, Audio, Modem, and NIC are, so I don't know what drivers to look for.
6. HP Support has no drivers for download, and no useful details about the system.

HP's so-called support site is a worthless waste of my valuable time. This is what I was able to find out about the machine:

Video: 810L (Not enough info for Driverguide.com to find anything)
Audio: Crystal AC'97 (Not enough info for Driverguide.com to find anything)
Modem: HP Mac 56k Lt Win Modem (I have no clue where to begin with this)
NIC: Nothing. It could be anything. It could be a end-user add-in for all I know.

Note: I can pull the HDD and install it as a secondary in my system, but where on the disk would I look for driver specs in an HP factory WinME install?

Someone please help me. I've Googled and Yahooed myself to death looking for hardware specs on this pile of junk, and I'm getting nowhere.

A:HP Pavilion 6735 KR: Hardware Device Drivers HELP!

HP drivers from their site, mostly for Windows ME but as a last resot they may work: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareList?product=59857&lang=en&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&os=54


It has Intel 810 chipset: http://downloadfinder.intel.com/scr...ctID=178&OSFullName=Windows*+98+SE&submit=Go!
So you want the Chipset INF, Application INF, Graphics and Audio driver.

The modem is from Lucent/Agere: http://www.agere.com/support/client/modem_dinstruct.html

For the Ethernet I would just look at the card itself to identify it. Look for teh model number ofr the chipset type. You can also use Everest to identify the card once you have a working O/S on it. Look under Device -> Physical Devices and the Ethernet card will be listed.


Of course the easiest thing to do is keep Windows ME on it. You could even order new Recovery CD's and then you wouldn't lose any Microsoft Works programs in it or worry about drivers.

Is there a way to manually incorporate or install a bunch of drivers on a Windows 7 machine without going through Device Manager and without the hardware actually being installed?

Example: I’d like my Windows 7 machine to have the device driver for a Broadcom and Intel NIC even though the machine only has an Intel network adapter installed. Likewise, I’d like to have an NVIDIA and Intel video card driver available even though I only have one installed. Or have drivers for three different chipsets installed. Or install all drivers for a specific HP computer and all drivers for a specific Dell computer. Get the picture?

This way, when I deploy my OS to a machine that has the custom hardware I have installed I no longer have to install the device drivers. I tried installing it by running the .exe or .msi files from the manufacturer but some won't install because the hardware doesn't exist. I also tried going through Device Manager and manually adding it but got the same results since there is no hardware to find. I'm guessing there might be a way to manually copy the .inf, .sys, etc files to some System32 directory and then registering .dll files manually--or something like that.

Please don’t ask me why, tell me it will screw up my system or not to do it, or recommend an alternative solution. I know exactly what I want and that’s what I want.


A:How to incorporate device drivers for hardware that doesn't exist

I'm not sure why you would want to do this, but as you found out, it can't be done in a conventional way since the hardware isn't installed. Basically since no such hardware exists, you can't install a driver for it.

I suppose you could try creating a driver repository, but I've no idea how to do such a thing.

Good luck.

I upgraded to Windows 10 a while back. Every time I open the computer I get a pop-up notification telling me the USB device is unrecognized. I have no USB devices in any of my 3 USB ports.
I sent my computer in twice. No help. They just uninstalled everything and reinstalled everything and told me it should be fixed. It is not. I then went about updating every driver in my Device Manager. I uninstalled the Unknown USB Device and then updated
other drivers. Certain drivers (such as PCI Express Root Port #3 - 9C14) when updating would also reinstall the Unknown USB Device, which I would then uninstall and keep working down the list. At the end of updating EVERYTHING I scanned for hardware changes
and "found" the Unknown USB Device. 
From what I can tell, and I know very little about this stuff, my computer can't name one of my USB ports. Since it can't figure out what it's called it can't download the proper driver for it. Since it can't download the proper driver it can't work properly.
The practical result from this is that one of my three USB ports does nothing when I put in any USB item (connect my android phone, thumb drive, presentation clicker, etc).
I've looked on tons of forums. My current thought is that if I can tell my computer what the deice is or download the right driver and tell my computer to use that driver for this device it should solve my issue. But I don't know how to know what the name

Let me put this way: I have a medium-ranged machine that can support pretty much all major applications and games out there ( With the exception of those high-end games that have recently released ) However, for some unknown reason, there have been games in wich i have had a few issues. Here's what's constantly happening:

1- Whenever i look at more graphically detailed areas in certain games, the entire response time slows down. The game runs slow basically. And of course, if i move my mouse to areas that are not as detailed, it all responds flawlessly during those few seconds.

2- And now for the strangest part. Whenever i'm in servers with alot of people, the issues mentioned above tend to happen very frequently, and of course, when i'm in servers with 2-6 people or so, the issues mentioned above never happen.

I have no idea why this has been happening. I Cleaned my computer properly. I do virus checks every now and then. I have recently de-fraged my Hard Drive. I Clean up cookies, temporary files, etc.

windows updates
pretty much all of the advice here: http ://troubleshooter.xyz/wiki/fix-usb-device-not-recognized-device-descriptor-request-failed

Any other ideas?

A:XPS 15 9550 Bluetooth stopped working (Unknown USB device - device descriptor request failed)

So in desperation I just went into BIOS settings to see if there are any BT settings that may have become disabled. I didn't see any, and I didn't change any other settings.
After rebooting, BT and my mouse is now working again.
Something seems to be really flaky here, but hopefully this will help others with the same issue.

Model is Acer Aspire One D270.
Internal bluetooth doesn't work.
Nothing in device manager.
Fn+F3 is meant to control it, but doesn't.
May be because I've messed with some programs.
Trying to re-install to factory settings.
Any suggestions at all?

I have Windows 7 Ultimate. Since very recently an unknown device keeps popping up in the device manager every time I start Win. It's reported location is within the front USB root hub but I haven't changed there anything lately. The device status reports "Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems (Code 43)". I can uninstall/disable it but it will get picked up again the next time I reboot. All other usb devices (mouse, keyboard, web camera, APC UPS, external drive, printer) work fine. How do I get rid of this nuisance so that it doesn't reappear?

I recently put together a new computer, and in the process of of installing the USB 3.0 connector from the front of my GX500 case, I either bent numerous pins on the motherboard USB 3.0 header or the motherboard shipped that way and I inadvertently made matters worse. Anyway, that header on the motherboard is without a doubt unusable.
Since I don't really need the USB 3.0 functionality, I bought a USB 3.0 -> 2.0 adapter cable, connected one end to the connector on the front of the case and the other end into the USB 2.0/1.1 header on the motherboard. Unfortunately, when Windows 7 boots and I plug a device into the front ports of the case, Windows detects the front USB ports as "Unknown Device" within Device Manager yet says the driver is successfully installed. I've already downloaded the most current Intel chipset drivers for my motherboard, deleted and reinstalled all USB drivers, and all rear USB connections are working perfectly fine - it's just the two front ports that are connected from the case to the USB 2.0/1.1 ports via the adapter cable.  I've tried both USB 2.0/1.1 headers on the motherboard, and I've tried plugging in several devices to the front USB ports, and this problem still persists.
I've ensured the connection inside the case is solid, yet I cannot get Windows to recognize the front USB ports.  However, I have confirmed that power is being sent to the front ports because it charges my phone when I connect it to the front USB ports via m... Read more

I have a Toshiba laptop, model L505-ES5018. I had Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit installed on here, but decided to reformat my hard drive using Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit. After the reformat was finished, I ran Windows Update and it found several items to download and install for me. I noticed that it also found optional items to download and install for me, so after all the important updates installed, I ran the optional updates. After all of this installed, I checked Device Manager to see if there were any errors and I found nothing. I assumed everything was fine. I decided to check Devices and Printers and under my laptop icon, there was a yellow icon with an exclamation point on it. I decided to run the troubleshooting option when I right-clicked the icon....it gave me a solution to download a Toshiba password utility program, so I did that and nothing happened, even after restart. Same icon appeared. When I clicked on the icon a second time, I noticed that the model of my computer at the bottom of this window, changed from L505 to TIAS. I have no idea what this is. I decided to do another reformat on my hard drive. This time, I ignored the optional updates. I checked Devices and Printers again, the same icon appeared but the model of my computer said L505, like it should. There is something in the optional updates that is changing this. Could it be the Intel chipset driver that the optional update is pushing? I'm not sure. I went back to Device Manager, th... Read more

Hi everybody.

I just bought myself a Powercolor Radeon HD 4890 yesterday. After installing the card and the required drivers everything works like a charm. However, every time I start up my PC I get a message saying that a new device has been found on my system. On checking Device Manager I found an "Unknown device" entry under "Other devices".

I'm attaching a screenshot of Device Manager.

Are there any drivers I'm missing? It only happened after removing my old card (after uninstalling all its drivers) and installing the Radeon.

Any help is greatly appreciated.


A:Unknown Device In Device Manager After Installing Radeon HD 4890

I have a Powercolor Radeon HD 4890 (I also have a Gigabyte 4890 and XFX 4890 in two other PCs). I think you need to install the latest ATI Catalyst Suite. You may have installed the driver only package. Anyway, I think it has to do with the HDMI capabilities of the card. High def sound is built into the card (the HD part of the card name) and the HD sound driver is part of the Catalyst Suite. When you use an HDMI cable to an appropriate display, HD sound is also transmitted through the same cable from the Radeon graphics card.

Of course, be sure to install .NET Framework 2.0 as it is required before you can install the full Catalyst Suite. The HD sound driver won't install without it. At least I had trouble before I installed .NET 3.5. I went to Windows Update and installed .NET Framework 3.5. 2.0 is included in that update and 2.0 wasn't available separately.

A:Unknown Device - Device Instance Path (ACPI\INT33BD\1)

Hi: I am pretty sure you need this driver.  The latest is for W8.1. This package provides the driver that enables the Intel SidebandFabric device. Intel Sideband Fabric Device Driver is a bridge tothe Intel Dynamic Platform and Thermal Framework. This package isprovided for supported notebook models that are running a supported operating system. File name: sp65474.exe I don't know if not having that driver installed is related to the black screen issue.

My 7270 latitude touch screen stopped working shortly after first use (after win update worked again but for a short time).
All drivers are up to date.
In device manager a USB device shows as unknown (yellow warning triangle), otherwise there are no indications to the source of the problem.  There is no other touch screen device showing in device manager. 
How do I perminently solve this?

So should I do this:

When I download that zip file from under "Install the Bluetooth driver:" it has so many files to choose from.... I don't know what to do?

I've also found out that I need to disable "boot from network" or "boot from lan" in bios to get rid of this unkown device issue?

Well it might be a good idea to look at the following tutorial:

Device Manager - Finding Unknown Devices

Use the link in Step 7

Also I tend to find this tool useful:

Download Tweaking.com - Hardware Identify Portable - MajorGeeks

Right click on each result in the list for more options.

Edit: On my machine a similarly named device appears to be a webcam.

In the list USB Composite Device doesn't mean much but matching the ID seems to indicate that it's the webcam.

How do i figure out what driver or even component windows wants software for when in the device manager under other devices it lists an unknown device and windows update cannot find anything.

Oh and is it appropriate for me to use this topic to ask another question regarding explorer.exe as while i am inside a folder i delete (by choosing delete from the context menu in the tree view) while inside that folder on this particular laptop PC explorer. always crashes, collect information, sends it and restarts explorer. I have not experienced this problem on any other pc running any version of windows 7, oh and the same happened with build 7264 x32 and the current install of build 7600 x64.
