    Meaning of Warning Icons in Device Manager

    After installing a new Samsung 850 EVO SSD (this is in addition to the SSD that is on the mother board)in my Dell XPS 8700 and upgrading to Win10, I have three warnings showing up in Device Manager.

    Opening their properties shows that all three are working correctly with no error codes. All of the drivers are current. I do see that the NVidia GeForce GTX 660 and the Intel 8 Series/C220 Series USB EHCI #2 -8C2D share the same IRQ 16. I've done a little poking around including running the Depp Support Assistant and correcting a few issues, I cannot find anything the might point me to the reason for these warnings.

    Can anyone explain what the might mean?

    Since everything appears to be working well, should I simply treat the little yellow warning as just informational and move on?

    I don't believe these are warning but just symbols indicating PCI connections. If you look closely, you will see they are symbols depicting an PCI card.

    I have them on my Windows 10 systems as well.

    If there was something wrong it will be a yellow triangle
    your pic shows a small pci card that's normal, I have them on mine.
    when I get a problem that icon changes to the Yellow triangle

    Hi pbcopter and shakennstirred and thanks very much for you quick responses. Good to know. On my 1920x1600 screen they're so small it was hard to see exactly what they were. I just assumed the worst. At least it got me to update some of my drivers so it's not all bad!
