    What category are the unknown devices under? Or are they a category all to themselves?

    Rebooted.....6 unknown devices show up as Unknown Devices.....I finally am able to view the properties and they all appear to be something about a driver being not configured correctly.....going to mfg's Website to see if they can help me......

    Also, disconnect any peripheral devices--printers, USB hardware, etc..while you're working on this.
