Default Unknown PCI Device Detected

Hey CF

I just installed a nVidia XFX 9800GTX in my rig. Install went pretty smooth (other than the card is a giant, lol 10.5" long). Because of the size of the card I had to move my sound card down to a lower PCI Slot, so as to give both some air flow.

Anyways to make a long story short, after installing all of the new drivers and verifying that everything was working as expected, Device manager still claims that I have a "? PCI Device". Could this because I moved the sound card? Might I add that the sound card works perfectly, and both the video card and soundcard are detected in the device manager. I have no problem with just disabling it, I just would like to know what it is...


Asus M2N-SLI DELUXE mobo | XFX Geforce 9800GTX 512mb | AMD X2 4600+ | 3GB OCZ Platinum (2x512, 2x1) | 320GB WD HD + 500GB WD HD | 19" Samsung SyncMaster 931c 2ms x 2 | Creative Fatality X-Fi Sound Card |

It more than likely is from moving your sound card to another slot. An easy fix would be to uninstall the both devices, and then reinstall the drivers for your sound card.
