  2. Remove the Device

    If the updated unit failed to fix the problem, you may want to delete it from Device Manager (DM). After deleting the hardware, you can reconnect it using Add New Hardware Wizard from Control Panel.

If you are still getting error code 1 even after following the both steps, it is the time to check the hardware documentation of the device. Certain devices will not work properly with certain versions of Windows. So you must double check whether the unit you are trying to configure on your computer supports the Operating system and other system settings. If you have migrated from Vista to Windows 8 or 7 recently, there is a chance to see this popup due to the compatibility issues. The hardware unit may not be compatible with latest Operating Systems. Though Windows 8 and 7 has the feature to run a program designed for older versions, rarely incompatible drivers cause issues and warning. You can use "Run this program in compatibility mode for" feature to run the program or hardware unit for current Microsoft OS version.

Destination Host Unreachable - Reasons and Solutions

The error message "Destination Host Unreachable " tells that the ping request from our computer cannot find the route to the destination IP address(destination host). It means, the Packet send from your computer reached the destination network successfully but the remote gateway failed to find the destination host. So the remote gateway sends an Echo message Destination host unreachable. One major possibility for this error; there is no route listed in the remote gateway, for the packet send from your computer, to the destination host. If there is no route available, it is impossible to find the destination host and your computer will receive an error message "Destination host unreachable" from remote gateway. So one of the reason for this can be faulty routing table. If the destination host is down at the time the packet send, it may result destination host unreachable error message.
