Unable to find driver for Modem Device on High Definition Audio Bus

Hello,

I have a new Lenovo ThinkPad T61 with XP SP2 installed.  I had a unknown PCI device that I found the drivers for; turns out they were for audio.  Once I installed them the sound started to work but now I have a new device that is coming up with a question mark in the device manager.  It is the modem device on high definition audio bus.

Can someone please help me find the driver for this device?

Thanks!

Thanks but I already installed that.  As a matter of fact I had to install that hot fix before I could install the audio drivers.  That is when modem device on high definition audio bus came up as unknown.

What happens when you click Update Driver for that device and allow it to search the internet as well?

Try this:
Start-Programs-Accessories-System Tools-System Information. Click on "components" and highlight "problem devices". Any hardware device with a driver problem will be listed here. Make a note of the PNP Device ID line of the entry. It will contain a Vendor number and a Device number (VEN. . . . DEV. . . .)
both four digits long.
Look up those numbers here:

http://www.pcidatabase.com/index.php

This will tell you the manufacturer and the chip number.  First port of call is the manufacturer's website.  If no joy there, try a driver database like Driverguide:

If you have problems downloading, use the System Indformation proceedure in my post above to find out the manufacturer of the driverless chips...

Thanks for your help!  I found the manufacturer to be Conexant Systems and I was able to download the driver from their web site.

Thanks again!

There is also a tool I have used called Unknown Devices found here:

It's not a 100% all the time, but it is a quick and easy way to identify pesky unknown devices.
