    Identify correct drivers.

    Hi,

    I've got a laptop with a few yellow ? in device manager. I can't work out what the heck they're for (all the storage and motherboard drivers are there). Can someone remind me of the name of the handy tool that lets you look up exactly what driver it needs.

    can often be helpful though often the first 4 characters of pci\ven_ tell you a lot so 8086 is intel
