DO YOU KNOW WHAT DEVICE DRIVER IS?
Is this what we usually see when installing a new computer or install a webcam.
Device drivers generally either come with our operating system, or we install them from a CD. But, like any software, drivers are upgraded and updated, by the manufacturers, to remove bugs, add extra functionality to the hardware or to improve the performance of the device. Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face problems ranging from the relatively minor such as having hardwarethat seems buggy and poorly performing, to the more major such as hardwarefailures, conflicts and complete system crashes.
Most of the drivers can be downloaded from the manufacturer websites, but it's a difficult task because some time you even don't know the manufacturer name or the manufacturer has stopped their business.
WHY DOES THIS HAPPEN?
There are many reasons that a Device Manager will list a device asunknown and hence, there is no foolproof way to troubleshoot theerror. Some of the causes for Unknown Device error are:
- The hardware does not have the requisite software drivers, andWindows is not able to determine the device type
- The driver is not compatible with the OS and hence it is not ableto inform Windows about the hardware. This is common if aWindows 9x/ME driver is installed on Windows 2000/XP.
- Each hardware component should normally communicate a basic device ID to Windows. If the hardware does not have this device ID or Windows does not recognise the device ID of the hardware, then the device is listed as unknown.
