Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 6400 Notebook ?

Can't connect to internet with cable or wifi

\015 I've gone to my device manager aunder hardware and "Other devices" are showing with a yellow "?!" against them. What does this mean\015

Answers :

Other devices with a yellow indicator means two things:

1. Other Device is an unknown device to the computer - if you know which device it is and have a driver or cd for it, set it up

2. The yellow indicator means the device is not working properly.

You should remove the device and then select the add hardware section this will restart the process of adding the device where you can specify the device, manufacturer and driver.

You can check the other properly loaded devices to see which one you are missing. For example if there is no network card specified, it may be the one listed in other devices.

Good Luck, leave response please.
