Thank you very much, this was really helpful, I got the task at work of upgrading our s to Win10 and was about to give up and recommend we stay on Win7, with this work around we will be able to keep our laptops for a few more years.

StephenChaos Replied on December 14, I found the Dell driver package R Just a suggestion, to do a firmware upgrade BIOS and chipset first before install this monitor driver shouldn’t hurt.
I noticed there was only one monitorunder device manager after I installed Windows In reply to Java Jake’s post on August 11, I updated to windows 10 a couple of nights ago and it went ok.
I have the same question You devicd help protect yourself from scammers by verifying that the contact is a Microsoft Agent or Microsoft Employee and that the phone number is delo official Microsoft global customer service number. Kutoz Replied on February 9, How satisfied are you with this reply?
Also had an unknown device which turned out to be ST Micro Accelerometer. The only things I had to update were the Bluetooth driver from Microsoft to Dell Bluetooth driver dvice it to work. Ive had video hangups plenty of times that needed a reeboot or a safe mode and reinstall of the driver to correct it.
Yes, there are times that you will not notice E Unknown Device issue unless you try to use one of its specific functions. I have the latest Bios version, it was the first thing I tried.

A laptop may had come with a pre-installed OS, let us take Windows bit Vista as an example, but because of advertisements and popularity PC users may want to upgrade their OS to the bit version of Vista or change their OS to Windows 7. I wonder how many e’s have been tossed just because of this.
I find any intel driver that supports the card is pretty buggy in win 8. This morning, I installed the windows 10 upgrade on my Dell Latituce E, and it came to a point where there was just a black screen, I’ve turned it off an on again at least 20 times, and I still can’t get it to work; all it does is display the Dell logo, then the windows 10 logo, and then just a black screen and stays there.
I’d resisted upgrading because of this issue, but the forced upgrade starting this week made me push ahead.
I updated to the latest BIOS and chipset and it is still not working. You can follow the question or vote as helpful, but you cannot reply to this thread. Did this solve your problem? Tech support scams are an industry-wide issue where scammers attempt to trick you into paying for unnecessary technical support services.
