How can I identify the 'other devices' in my device manager? i.e. Base System Device, SM Bus Controller, Video Controller, Unknown Device. Don't know where to search to find drivers.

formated, reinstalled XP, working on replacing drivers from scratch.  Am now back online because I found the Drivers for my Wireless adapter.  Now am looking first to identify some mystery devices then to load drivers.  ANY suggestions?

For the other devices, try this program
