Error Code 28 Troubleshooting
There is always the slim chance that the Code 28 error you're seeing in Device Manager was caused by a fluke with Device Manager or in your bios. If that's the case, a reboot might fix the Code 28.
You might have to visit your computer or hardware manufactures homepage and download the driver for the device.
