Some motherboards identify components in the BIOS.  If you go into the BIOS and list what's there and compare it to what's in the device manager, you might notice a missing component and get an answer to the question.  See if that helps.

You can try DriverMax driver search utility. It may find a driver that works for you. It's free.

Try this:
Click Start, run, then type: msinfo32 <enter>

In the System Information window, click Components, Problem Devices.

Get the VEN # and the DEV # for device you are looking for the driver.

Goto http://www.pcidatabase.com/index.php and do a search for the VEN and DEV numbers.
This well tell you the manufacturer. Then goto the manufacturer's website and find the driver.

What is the chipset of your motherboard? Maybe if you download and install the latest chipset drivers it would solve the problem. You can use this utility to help you find this:
