How to Find Drivers for Unknown Devices

Posted by: pctutorials  :  Category: Tips, Troubleshooting


Sometimes in your device manager, you will see a little yellow question mark next to an unknown device. Most of the time, this unknown device can be resolved by installing the correct driver via CD. But what if you don’t have a CD or if the manufacture didn’t provide one?

This is where the freeware application Unknown Devices comes in. By checking the Device Manager for unknown devices and extracting information from it, this program attempts to figure out what the device is.

When Unknown Devices displays the unknown device you are looking for, you can select the text in the list and press F3 which will open up a browser and search for the driver selected. Neat. By the way, the app is also portable so you don’t even need to install it.
