    Question Cant identify the driver needed for hardware


    Hi there,

    I'm hoping someone can help with this.
    I cant identify the drivers needed for hardware in a PC. The OS is XP, and in Device Manager i see yellow exclamation marks indicating that the driver needs to be updated but the description of the hardware is fairly non-descript. There is no information about manufacturer etc. so i cant search for a driver for it.

    Is there any means of finding out what hardware is installed and identify the drivers that are needed.
