    Unknown device


    Recently I upgraded my windows home premium o/s to win 8 without much fanfare. After the installation was complete I notice under the Device Manager , 1 Device Unknown is shown. This means 1 device has no driver.

    Can anyone tell me:

    1. How I can identify this missing driver?
    2. Where I can locate this driver?

    My laptop is a HP.
