Help! I can not find the driver

Have you ever reloaded a machine after a system crash and then low and behold you can not find the driver for that important network card?

Here is a trick that I have found useful.

1. As the machine detects the new hardware, you will see a yellow exclamation mark in the device manager.

2. This exclamation mark will tell you that the driver is not loaded properly.

3. Once you see the device does not have the driver, right click the device and select properties> click on device information> and then onto details> you are looking for a hexadecimal string.

4. Once you find the hexadecimal string > Open a new web page and google it.
