Re: unknown device, please help

Hey that did not work but I got lucky and figured it out.  Now I did download some drivers from the website so I am not sure if it was already in the computer or not but the computer could not automatically recognize the driver for the STMicroelectronics 3-axis digital accelerometer.  

PCI express is I/O connection device.  It is connected to the motherboard and is used to connect other hardware to the motherboard.  I am assuming it did not recognize the hardware connected to it because it could not find the driver.  I went into update driver and did it manually instead of clicking find automatically.  Click browse and choose c:\dell and let it search that folder.  The driver was in that folder.  Hope it works for you
