Any idea?

if at all possible always get your drivers from the source. starting with the motherboard chipset from the MB manufacture. even if you gotta open up the case and take a look inside. – Psycogeek Sep 23 '11 at 13:38

Actually, DeviceDoctor detects all your hardware, checks the current versions of the drivers and lets you know if there's an updated version. You can download and install them individually.

+1 for DeviceDoctor – Nifle Sep 27 '09 at 12:39 and can also be helpful. I didn't try the device doctor, but many other utilities I've seen looked like malware, so I resorted to using the websites only without any tools to find the device names, and then googled the official websites.
