and where there are no XP drivers, try the win2003 and/or the win2000 drivers.

If you have further unknown devices after trying those linked above.....

Go to the unknown device in the device manager>Rt click>Properties.....

Go to the Details Tab, and highlight the long string....Theres a drop down at the top, it should be on Device Instance ID (XP, might be a tad off on the verbage)

Press control+C to copy it....

Looks somthing like the following....

PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_9581&SUBSYS_30C5103C&REV_00\4&171B8011&0&0008

Go to http://www.pcidatabase.com, and enter "9581" (no qoutes) into the Device Search box, and hit enter.

When you see results, if there are multiple ones, use the Vendor ID (1002 in the above example) to narrow it down further....

Change the values in the example to match your own Instance ID string.....

Now that you have identified the device, you can get the right drivers instead of just disabling the device....

If by "for the drives," you mean the chipset try this one:

If the network adapter is a Broadcom BCM5754, try one of the drivers here:
