Windows 7: unknown devices

21 Oct 2012   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit
unknown devices

Hey sevenforums

im trying to set up a laptop - HP pavillion dv7-2030ev

now, in the device manager it shows 5 unknown devices:

Base System Device

Base System Device
Unknown device
Unknown device

When i check the 3 first it says: Location: PCI bus 6, device 0; function 1 3 and 4 respectively.

When I click on the 1st unknown device it says Location: on Microsoft ACPI-Compiant System
and when i click on the 2nd it says Location: on Intel(R) ICH9M LPC Interface Controller - 2919

I have installed some drivers from the website of intel (Intel Chipset Software Installation Utility) but they all appear.

What can these be? Should I just use a driver update program (like drivergenius) to install the drivers for these devices?
