Since you didn't expand the network devices, this can either be a network card or a modem or a COM port.  Try to install the Chipset driver (if you haven't already) and see if the device gives any additional information to what it is.
I always have an issue with tha on our HPs.  But I think it is Infineon Technologies

Try doing windows update from IE -- Tools --> Windows update --> Custom --> On the left side check for "Hardware, Optional"

I just had a Lenovo laptop I was having a bear of a time finding the correct network driver from their website and the windows update found everything I needed.
How do you know if your security is working?

Protecting your business doesn’t have to mean sifting through endless alerts and notifications. With WatchGuard Total Security Suite, you can feel confident that your business is secure, meaning you can get back to the things that have been sitting on your to-do list.

You can also download and install the System Updater which will check your drivers for you:

I should have added, that always leaves a yellow exclamation in HP notebooks too.  I put the resource CD in and click on the PCI mark and do an auto update and then it gives me a choice of 32-bit or 64-bit.  Not smart enough to know which it is, anyway that installs the final object on my notebooks.
