Having problems with your HP PC Desktops ?

My usb hub comes up ''un known device'' can you help


Answers :

Also include the hub make and model number.....
\015\012Generally , an unknown device means that the drivers are not there and windows has thrown it's own generic drivers in . Once they have "unknown" status, the computer thinks they are installed and wont try to install them again UNTIL you go into the device manager and uninstal the drivers denoted by a yellow ! or ?.
\015\012hit START-SETTINGS-CONTROL PANEL-doouble click system- select the hardware tab at the top- then select device manager.
\015\012Scroll down to "unknown devices" click the plus next to it if it isnt already displayed and uninstall the devices with the yellow marks.
\015\012This will make the computer look for new drivers when you restart it.
