Right click on the device and select Properties
Click on the Details tab
In the dropdown box, select Hardware ID
There will be a string of letters and numbers:
- PCI devices have 4 characters following the VEN_ string, and 4 characters following the DEV_ string.
- USB devices have 4 characters following the VID_string, and 4 characters following the PID_ string.
- other devices may have different stuff - in that case we'll need the entire string of info.

Provide us with the information above and we'll have a look see to find out what it is.
For PCI devices I look at http://www.pcidatabase.com
For USB devices I look at http://www.linux-usb.org/usb.ids
For the rest of the stuff, I'll start with the system specs and a Google search.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

Thanks I already figured it out but I had to go to work so I could not delete the post. It was my LCD display on the front of my case.
