Unknown Device in device manager.

I have this unknown device in device manager,It has no file or driver,I have tried everything to get rid of it including deleting it but on reboot it appears again.

Tried removing it and running C Cleaner but it keeps returning on reboot.

Tried Intel and nothing there to help.

This is the only thing I can find about it.Unknown device on Intel(R) ICH7 Family LPC Interface Controller - 27B8

I don't think there is anything that will fix it.Just wanted to know if there was a way to remove it from the Device manager.

I can disable it but sometimes it appears enabled again.

The problem is I think that the computer keeps looking for updates for it and I have noticed a slight slow down on opening pages in PCA.

Googled for it and so far found no fix for it.

I suppose you've already installed the Win7 chipset drivers. link

Actually Intel says the chipset drivers were up to date When using the driver search tool this morning.

Getting a bit lost here I take it Intel and Foxconn have different chipsets or are they the same.

Just gone into device manager System Devices and updated a few Intel drivers on there.

my computer is only about 2 year old so I would imagine it has all of those updates shown in Foxconn.

If the PC came with Windows 7 then yes it should have all the drivers on the disc supplied. If not and you've installed Win 7 then expand Motherboards Drivers : System & Chipset Drivers in the link and you should see that Win 7 32 and 64-bit drivers are different from XP and Vista. That last link didn't work showing the Chipset drivers expanded. Disregard if it came with Win 7.

You have a point there.The computer came without an O/S but I don't think that I had to use the driver Cd that came with it.

Just checked with Amazon and my computer is a bit older than I thought.October 2009.

Will have a look tomorrow and see if I can find the CD.

Now following this.

Manufacturer Foxconn Model G31MX Series (Socket 775) Version OEM Chipset Vendor Intel Chipset Model P35/G33/G31 Chipset Revision 10 Southbridge Vendor Intel Southbridge Model 82801GB (ICH7/R) Southbridge Revision A1

Chipset vendor is Intel so should I be getting my downloads from them or is that for different chipsets.Intel says I am up to date.If you think I should download the W/7 ones from Foxconn I will.

Not in the Bios but it was in Services.Disabled it and stopped it running.Rebooted but no difference so started it again.

I am going to assume the computer came with all of the drivers preinstalled. The CD that I found I think was for an earlier computer.

So going to class this as resolved and maybe find out how to remove the unknown device at a later date.

Had another look in the Bios for IR and it was not there on it's own.

I did find IR DA Duplex Mode and that is set to half Duplex or you can change it to full Duplex but no way of turning it off.

Should have noticed that when I first searched.

So can rule that out as a fix.

I get bored searching all of the time so I usually have a day or so off then try Googling again.

Will find something eventually.
