I have seen a question that identified how to obtain the Identification data on PCI hardware and then using another site to identify the manufacturer using manufacturer ID numbers and other realated codes.

Fantastic:

I volunteered to convert a XP machione to a Win98 machine. I got myself into trouble with the devices. I have taken care of all except the motherboard with has an itegrated video driver. HP even though the PC was a 'special' had no information on the motherboard.
