Can't seem to locate a driver for the ethernet controller on a HP M7257C.

It is not where it should be on the HP site.

I believe I actually need the full chipset driver.

Here is the Device Instance ID:

PCI\\VEN_8086&DEV_27DC&SUBSYS_2A22103C&REV_01\4&1AF1648C&0&40F0

Also helpful would be to learn how to read this ID so that I can find the information for myself.  I tend to run across this problem frequently.

Thanks for your help.

One of the ways to find the drivers is Googling the Device Instance ID, then going to the manufacturer's website, in this instance, it looks like it's an HP machine.
