I was recently asked to look at a Sony Vaio VPCSB which was detecting new hardware on every Windows boot. The machine was otherwise working well. Upon inspection I discovered that there were several unknown devices which seemed to be related to Bluetooth. I reinstalled the latest drivers from the Sony website but this failed to clear the unknown devices. The search was on…
Fortunately I found a forum thread suggesting that there were some newer Broadcom drivers available from HP which hadn’t been locked to HP only devices. I downloaded these newer drivers which installed perfectly first time. As I’d hoped they included drivers which worked for the unknown devices. After a quick reboot the laptop booted as expected and no longer started trying to locate drivers. Success! Thanks HP.
