We need more information. Are your computer custom made or branded? DELL ?

Take a look at Unknown Device Identifier - Identify unknown devices not recognized by Windows in your system especially after you reinstall your system and cannot figure out what all those yellow question mark labeled devices really are.

If you have a drivers and utilities CD-ROM that was provided with your computer, that's the best place to check.

If you do not have the drivers and utilities CD-ROM, check the machine manufacturer's website for your make/model of machine. Dell's website is great because it can be broken down by service tag or can even do an online scan of your machine's hardware profile.

From the manufacturer's website, i'd go ahead and copy all the drivers for hardware that is installed on your machine, drop them into a common folder. Make yourself a drivers and utilities CD-ROM for backup purposes.
