hello,

my friend reformatted his computer without driver cd's and all

now he doesnt know what drivers to get for network, sound, etc

his computer is built customized

and his model number is PI-P350AJ2-0

and follwing attachted file is the Report file from Everest

so you would know what devices he has..

i thought his network adapter was realtek but it wasnt (my mistake from previous thread)

he's got no network adapter

also there is yellow question marks on ethernet controllers and network adapter

(his motherboard is unknown and all so its like impossible for me to start out anything)

I would really appreciate your help

Right click on any unknown devices in the Device Manager and select Properties, then click on the Details tab, then on Hardware ID in the dropdown box. It should be in this format:

"PCI\VEN_4444&DEV_0016&SUBSYS_40090070&REV_01"

Post back what you find.

When I do a format and a fresh install (I did it twice this weekend) I get similar devices showing a problem in Device Manager. Mine are Ethernet Controller, SM Bus Controller and Video Controller (VGA Compatible).

He needs to open the computer and search for all details Make, Model, Serial Numbers for the Motherboard, Video Card and Sound Card if its a seperate sound card and not part of the Motherboard. Mine is a Gigabyte Motherboard with the inbuilt sound card so I use the CD that came with the computer. You can download the drivers for the Ethernet Controller and SM Bus Controller of Gigabyte or your Motherboard manufacturer. I can download sound card drivers from Realtek but I use the Gigabyte CD. My graphics card is an ATI which I have the CD but you can download the drivers from ATI.

If you Google for "microsoft tun miniport adapter" +drivers there are a few sites showing these. :thumbsup:

If you consider a hardware ID such as this the important information are the 4 symbols follow the first two "_" characters.

PCI\VEN_10EC&DEV_8186&SUBSYS_D6088086&REV_01\4&......

In your case this is 10EC and 8186. The first set of numbers identify the vendor and the second identify the device. Then it's off to an internet search engine to try and track it down.

The 4 numbers/letters after the first _ are the Vendor ID; the 4 numbers/letters after the second _ are the Device ID.
Go to this website (http://www.pcidatabase.com/ ) and enter the Vendor ID into the Vendor Search box. In the next page, click on the link for the vendor of that device. In the next page, search for the Device ID and let us know what it says.
