    Hello,
    I just did a fresh install Windows 7 and installed all updates and drivers. Although, I noticed an unknown device in Device Mamager. It's an Intel(R) ICH10 LPC - 3A18 Interface Controller as written in properties. I installed every damn thing about it (actually the Intel_ChipsetInf_V9111014_XPVistaWin7), but it seems that I'm missing something. Also, so far system is running smoothly, but I want to be sure that no harm will be done from this issue. Any ideas why it's marked as unknown all the time?:confused:

    Any help is appreciated...

    Motherboard: Asus P5Q SE
    Prossesor: Intel Core2Quad Q8200
    Video card: Nvidia GeForce 9600GT

    Have you run Windows Update? Do so manually and check the optional updates once he scan is done, there should be an ASUS ACPI driver listed, install that and see if it clears the error. The driver is also posted on the ASUS site under I think utilities for many motherboards.
