    Device Manager "other" entries


    After a fresh W10 1703 fully updated install on a 3148 Inspiron laptop, four OTHER DEVICES appear in Device Manager: PCI Data Aqquisition and Signal Processing Controller and three 'unknown devices.' "Drivers not installed; no compatible driver can be found."

    Prior to this install several Intel drivers were listed under Programs and Features. likely because they were added after the fact. They are not listed now and Intel's update utility reports nothing missing. SFC is good and PC operation is normal.

    The errant entries are redetected at boot even if disabled, or uninstalled via Safe Mode. Suggestions on banishing them for good would be appreciated.

    Hi borgus

    Lets first id then see if drivers can be found. Right click on device, properties, details tab, Properties section select Hardware ID's.

    Cut and paste first line in "Value" into Google. Google should give you a little more detail.

    ** resolved**


    Dell came up with a fix - a list of drivers to be installed in order. When the Intel DPTF driver was loaded the Device Manager was cleared. Thanks for your time and input.
