Its part of the TPM (Trusted Platform Management) system on OEM Intel boards - usually HP/Compaq.  Look for a chipset driver for the machine on the manufacturer's site called something like Embedded security tools/TPM or (the brand name) Infineon.  On the HP drivers site it will be listed under Security-Software.

Or post details of the machine and someone can direct you to the right download for your version of Windows.

It is the TPM (Trusted Platform Module), I believe the chip is actually made by Amtel.  This would be used for hardware based security and such things as pre-boot and/or SSO authentication using various things on your laptop such as smart card and/or biometric readers.  If you search the site for your manufacturer for a TPM driver that should be it.

What hardware are you running? i did a search on Intel's site for 82801 and mention that this is related to your Chipset

I would imagine that a driver update on your machine would resolve this unknown Item

Hi Everyone,

I read it wrong, it was an unknown device ON Intel(R) 82801GBM (ICH7-M) LPC Interface Controller - 27B9. When looking into the details pane of this device it shows: ACPI/HPQ0006 and when searching on that it stated: HP Quicklaunch Buttons.

Solved, thankx!!!
