Unhappy unknown device in device manager after OS and driver re-inst - 10-01-2008, 03:55 PM

I basically wiped my machine and re-installed WinXP and the various drivers when my Mini9 arrived.

I thought I had covered everything, but I have an unknown device up in Device manager under Other Devices that I cannot for the life of me figure out!

I'm almost ready to step though re-installing each thing in line again to see if something glitched out, but the plain fact of the matter is that everything seems to be running perfectly!

Should I bother?

it's probably the tiny piece of hardware for the wireless select switch. it actually "unplugs" the bluetooth module when it's turned off.

Thanks!
I found another thread here about the drivers and have since fixed this issue.

This site has helped me clear up the last little things to set up on my Mini 9. Just great!

Hey strider_mt2k,

Can you help me with the Unknown Device? I am trying to figure it out and I read all the other posts and cannot find it.

Thanks...
