Code 16: Windows cannot identify all the resources this device uses

Updated: August 31, 2007

Applies To: Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista

Device Manager displays the following message in the Device Properties dialog box, on the General tab, in the Device Status text box:

Windows cannot identify all the resources this device uses. (Code 16)

The device is only partially configured.

To specify additional resources for this device, click the Resources tab in the Device Properties dialog box for a specific device in Device Manager. If there is a resource with a question mark next to it in the list of resources assigned to the device, select that resource to assign it to the device. If the resource cannot be changed, click Change Setting. If Change Setting is unavailable, try clearing the Use automatic settings check box to make it available.

If this is not a Plug and Play device, see the hardware documentation for more information.
