Device Manager (? marks) in Dell E1705
Posted on 2009-05-06
I reloaded my os in a dell inspiron e1705. The OS is windows xp and I installed the drivers in the proper order (according to the dell website).
My PC is running fine but I have 4 yellow question marks in my device manager under "other devices". Three of the question marks are Base System Device, the other is Modem Device on High Def Audio Bus. I know the Modem ? is because I did not install the driver for that device as I do not use it, is this ok (not to install it??)
The other three I dont know what they are and could use some advice or help. Does it really matter if I have those yellow question marks (meaning something is obviously not installed or installed properly). As mentioned the OS seems to be running great.
Also I dont know if this matters or not but dell shipped this pc with windows media center and when I just installed an OS I installed windows xp.
Thank you in advance,
(PS I have gone to the dell site and entered my system code and it told me exactly what drivers it was shipped with (alot of them being unnecessary as dell likes to fill their pcs with tons of garbage and bloat) and I thought I installed all the important drivers..)
