    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:

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

    These hardware diagnostics are free:

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