EEK!

Hey out there, I have tried everything from: microsoft support, forums, etc. but I cannot get my pc to detect my devices & names except for multi-printer, mouse, computer, keyboard, and a generic external hard drive without a (drive letter?) in the devices and printers catagory. When I hit computer catagory after start, it only shows: local disc (C:), and removable disc device, which is my desktop computer's internal DVD/CD player. HELP! Now more politely, I would love your help..

Thank you so much for your reply!!

I'm an oldie but a relatively computernewbe......

Have a look in Device Manager. If you see one or more yellow question-marks in the device list it means you need to install the drivers for the devices which currently don't work. The drivers can be downloaded from your PC or laptop maker's website if they support Windows 7 on your particular model.

Thank you so much Pip22, but didn't work! No question marks on the items in the device List.under Disc drives shows my printer correctly and 4 generic storage device usb device, four times, and names one of storage devices name with location 0, channel 0, target 0, lun 0. says devise is working properly. Then suggests to write-caching policy. Under portable devices has: :\ for E,G,H,I,J & K. All very confusing to Me! Make any sense to You? Thank you if you should want to reply. Gratefully yours, Computernewbe
