    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 first 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:

    This will tell you the manufacturer and the chip number.  First port of call is the manufacturer's website
