Did you know that you can find the right drivers by doing this technique?

1. In the device manager you right click on the device and select properties, then go to details tab, then click the property drop down menu, and finally select hardware id's.
2. Watch the numbers that appears after VEN and DEV. This is the vendor id and device id and copy paste those id's here: http://www.pcidatabase.com/

Then you'll find the right driver.

Unless you know the vendor and model of your sound card, network card or other device, it will be difficult to find the correct driver to install. So this technique is way too helpful in that regard
