This is probably not critical, but I'm curious to see if we can find the USB device that is giving us that problem

Unplug 1 USB device from your computer. USB devices are "hot-swapable", so you do not have to turn your computer off or restart it to unplug/plug a USB device. Now on that screen, where you see the exclamation mark, press F5 on your keyboard. This refreshes Device Manager. You can also Right-click and select Scan for new hardware, if you want to make sure it refreshed correctly.

If that USB device with the exclamation mark disappears, then you found the device that you need to reinstall the software/drivers for. If it does not disappear, then you can plug it back in, and try another USB device.

If after trying all your USB devices, if none of them make it disappear, then I think it's safe to say we can ignore this "problem". If you ever notice a USB device not working, then you can come back here and let us know the situation. But it will probably just require its drivers to be reinstalled.

Let me know if you discover a USB device that belongs to that problem in Device Manager.

Exactly. If all your devices are working, I'd ignore it.

Now let's say you decide to plug in your digital camera a week from now (if you have one) and it doesn't work. That may be what this exclamation mark was about, though I don't see why it would be there now, if the device it is complaining about it not even plugged in.

But if you encounter that kind of situation: a USB device not working, then reinstall the drivers for that particular device.

And then again, you may never encounter a problem at all. This is something only time will tell.

I know I'm a pain but when I enabled Realtek RTL8139 Family PCI Fast Ethernet NIC this icon appered in the taskbar!

lol, you're not a "pain" :help: That icon just means you are not using that NIC to connect to the internet, so it shows that you are "disconnected" with that device. But you are connected through wireless, from what I can see in the picture. However, if you ever decide to use a wire, your NIC is now enabled, and you won't have trouble. :whistling:

Let us know if you need anything else. :blink:

see if this possible



How do I find my model, serial, or configuration number?

By providing your model, serial, or configuration number, we can quickly provide you with information specifically for your computer. In order to find these identifiers, you will need to turn your computer over and read the label on the bottom of your system.
