Hi jameshuertas,

The suggestion might mean "Hidden Devices" by "Greyed entries". You can find the Hidden Devices in Device Manger using the below mentioned steps:

1. Click "View".
2. Click "Show hidden devices".
3. Now you will see some additional devices listed.

Please provide me the link if you are referring to a thread or a forum, so that I can find an exact solution.

Please reply if you have any further questions.
