    Regarding my HP dx6500 laptop,

    I have, what appears to be, numorous duplicate listings in my device manager. Can someone tell me why and how to get rid of them?

    Also,... I have a WD n750 dual band router. In device Manager it's listed as a "dual band wireless router" in "Other Devices" (twice) with no driver, and also as "MYNETN750" in "System Devices" (also twice) with drivers. Networking has been giving me intermittent problems. Tried downloading new drivers with no success.

    Any ideas would be appreciated.

    My only guess is that drivers you have installed have been uninstalled before, but not properly removed.
