Finding Drivers and Management

We have all had our fun struggling with locating drivers etc when re installing pcs and servers.
We have been using Driver Pro 10 to backup the drivers typically and it is great a restoring them.
However at times the pc or server is dead and non bootable.

Does anyone know of a (CLEAN) program that has the ability to identify missing drivers (yellow exclamation) in the device manager and install them without having to go to the manufacturer's site and open the case to identify every part?  

Does such a utility exist?   We waste alot of time putting drivers back together on rebuilds.
Thanks

You can integrate a fair selection of drivers into your install disks.

For example
DriverPacks http://driverpacks.net/
Tutorial http://forum.driverpacks.net/viewtopic.php?id=1449


To identify but not install there is

There are plenty of software which could search and update the drivers for you. Check the following:

Thanks Sudeep but they will not find unidentified drivers - those programs will only update drivers on already attached and discovered.
