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.

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.

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.
