Is there a tool that will scan my computer's entire hardware to find all devices and return their names? names detailed enough to look up the driver?
Device manager generally is enough... it will show every device visible to the system.
mycomputer -> properties -> hardware -> device manager.
Cept without the driver installed device manager just gives you generic names, like "network controller" or something equally useless.
Yeah, that's when you start looking for a network card driver.
It's most likely either onboard or in a PCI slot, if it's onboard then track down your motherboard CD or check out their web-site. If it's PCI then check the spec of your PC or if you bought it yourself it probably came with a driver disc.
