first, we need to know your system specs, follow this tutorial

Second, why are you posting a Win 8 issue in sevenforums when there is eightforums?

Another PC, that uses Windows7. I posted this in another thread;

Common, I can almost guarantee that if any suggestions are given, my System Specs wouldn't be required. Why is everyone hung up on System Spec, most of the users on this board offer, so I'm one of the few that don't, why get yourself all tied in a knot or not help over that, it really doesn't make sense, even if you think it does.

Jerome, you ask a vague question about "Base" (foundation) "System" (contains multiple components) "Devices" (Literally, countless possibilties there)

I can guarantee you that a valid answer to your question will require more info than "Windows8"

Think about what you are asking, and you give zero information about your hardware..."tied in knots about system specs", yeah we like system specs so we can give correct or useful answers.

What answer are you looking for? You can't even buy shoes without knowing what size or color, etc...It's a two way street.

Quit being so stubborn about your system specs, you ask a question in the hardware and devices forum yet no one knows what hardware you have, do you see the problem there?

System Info - See Your System Specs

Yeah, but you have issues witn Windows 8, not windows 7, so eightforums is the best place to find answers.

Specs are needed to know what we are working with, we don't do it because we are nosy nor because we want to violate your privacy. The software in the tutorial I linked just makes a list of hardware composing your computer, as each computer is deifferent inside. Ask a mechanic to fix a car over the phone, without telling him what car he is working on, and listen to the answer, he won't be as polite as we are here.

This behaviour makes me think you have something to hide though.
Come on, the worst that can happen is that you get perma-banned.

Anyway, those in the list are unrecognized devices, go to the device manufacturer's site and download and install all the drivers they offer for Win8. If they don't try installing drivers for Win7 in compatiblity mode.

Base System Devices are the components on your motherboard. These are usually controlled by the Chipset driver, although some, like a Card Reader, sound chip, LAN controller, etc. require a separate driver.

You do not list your motherboard model (only the chipset) so I can't look to see what those other drivers could be. But you can look just as easily.

But most often you will find that many base system devices will disappear when the proper drivers are installed because they are simply multiple instances of the same component that the system does not know what to do with.

That is the diagnostics I came to as well. It's what drivers do these devices need, I can't figure out, and I've checked and checked hrm.

What is the brand and model is the motherboard?

And what drivers, including version numbers, have you installed so far?

And, is this a newer installation of Windows? Or has it been installed and running well for a while and you just noticed these devices?
