I bought a new Dell laptop which was not pre-installed (OS-less). I'm now downloading drivers from Dell's site, but for each category there's a selection and I'm not sure which drivers I should download.

Through device manager \ right click on an unknown device \ properties - I was able to find the device ID and vendor ID of each device. I used this site and also this site to try to find out what's what, but it seems its database is not complete.

What other resources\sites can I use to identify devices using their device\vendor ID?

I've added your first link to the question in parallel to you :) The second link is nice though – Jonathan Oct 29 '10 at 7:11

Unknown Device Identifier is the best tool I've used for tracking down drivers when I needed more information about a device.
