Missing Drivers - Can't Find Device Instance Id
Posted on 2012-03-22
Oops. I unintentionally closed out a previous version of this posting.
I'm re-installing an old Dell XPS Laptop with Windows, and I'm still missing a few drivers. Determining the correct driver for some of the devices is easy (ex. Ethernet Controller). Some aren't so easy (ex. PCI Device). I often take a look at the Device Instance Id to give me a clue about the devices with the missing drivers, but this version of XP isn't providing me with the Details tab on the device properties dialog. What are other methods exist to "hone in" on the proper drivers for the devices that "aren't so easy"?
