"Unknown Device" under device manager by Kris
OK, so I uninstalled my computer's two "USB root hubs" under device manager in order to attempt solve an issue with a webcam. Now, they appear as "Unknown Devices". Is there a way I could fix this so they are listed appropiately? I also attempted to delete the two uknown devices and have the computer search for new hardware, but they appear listed the same when found. Any ideas?

'Bad' Vista update? by bdenley
Windows had an update for me today. Some sort of update for Toshiba Bluetooth hardware (I have a big Dell XPS 710 with the Dell bluetooth keyboard and mouse). After that update, I had no mouse or keyboard and the update 'failed' to find any driver. Attempting to restart my bluetooth hardware was unsucessful as the system could no longer find my bluetooth hardware. Luckily System Restore...

Two years ago I built my PC and all has run perfectly since until yesterday. I turned it on only to be greeted on boot up by the error message '*keyboard* *error* or *no* *keyboard* *present'* This is before it has even fired up the Operating system so I guess its hardware based.

'Vanishing' device drivers -- a debugging suggestion by Don
We're seeing lots of people with devices which stop working after a few days, and Vista can't reinstall the drivers. My problem is that I don't have this bug, so I can't help debug it.

This is an informational post. If you don't use Ready Boost, in a dual boot situation, there is no reason to read further. Parameters: 2 gig of PC3200 Crucial RAM 2 gig Ready Boost enhanced SanDisk Micro (no U3 capabilities) I was noticing yesterday (Sunday) that Ready Boost did not seem to be doing anything, as opposed to actually seeing a decrease in application load time
