    Post List of Windows Device Manager Error Codes & their Solutions

    At times your Device Manager or DXDiag on your Windows computer, may report an error code. If you are seeing a hardware-related error, then this post will help you identify the cause and show you how to resolve the issue.

    If some of your devices are not working properly, running the Hardware and Devices Troubleshooter, Windows USB Troubleshooter, etc, may help you. But if it doesn't, you may have to find out the error code associated with your problem and go for specific troubleshooting, manually.

    Error Codes in Device Manager

    To find out the error code, open Device Manager, double-click the device type that has the problem. Next, right-click the device that has the problem, and then click Properties. This opens the device's Properties dialog box. You can see the error code in the Device status area of this dialog box.

    Here is the list of error codes:

    Code 1 "This device is not configured correctly. (Code 1)"
    Code 3The driver for this device might be corrupted… (Code 3)
