Device Usage

  Trackrat 23:06 22 Dec 2003

When you open device manager and right click on an entry and click properties on certain items the device usage box is greyed out is this anything to worry about or is there a solution to enable this box. I am running XP home and have downloaded all the latest drivers for the items with the greyed out boxes, but it has made no difference the boxes are still greyed out.

The device usage box normally gives you the option to enable or disable the item it applies to but on the keyboard you cannot use this option because the slit is greyed out instead of the white slit with the enable or disable options selected from an arrow at the end of the slit

its designed like this,certain items like keyboard/processor/HDD etc will not allow you to disable them here

for obvious reasons

its normal
