Unknown Devices Review

Have you ever seen those dreaded "Yellow Question Marks" when you are inside of Windows Device Manager?

A Yellow Question Mark usually implies that a device attached to your system has an incorrect driver or is malfunctioning.

If the device uses the PCI bus, then a program called "Unknown Devices" is one of the *very* best ways to resolve the issue by attempting to search for drivers.

Unknown Devices: How it Works

Just like Belarc Advisor, "Unknown Devices" provides information about a device. By right-clicking on on any information it finds, your web browser will launch and search for related information on the Internet.

Just download the the UnknownDevices.zip file and extract it to a folder. All you have to do is double click the exe file after that to run the program (no formal "install" is required).

From the author's web site:

" Unknown Devices helps you find what those unknown devices in Device Manager really are. By checking Device Manager for unknown devices and extracting information from it, this program attempts to figure out what the device is. You might not have to open your case or look up random numbers off of PCI cards to figure out what they are. " (Source: halfDone.com)

Download Unknown Devices, and have it try and fix your yellow question marks!
