I'm currently installing Windows 7 onto a new laptop before imaging it to deploy. I need to install the Wireless and Graphics drivers, but the HP site is offering me both ATI and Intel graphics drivers (at 102MB and 470(!)MB) a pop, as well as Intel, Broadcomm, RealTek and Atheros wireless drivers.

Is there a bit of software that will tell me what devices are in the machine so I don't have to go through, trial-and-error and find which is the right driver for the hardware?

The reason its offering both Intel and ATI graphic drivers is because your laptop has both a dedecated graphics card and one provided by your 2nd or 3rd generation i3,i5,i7 processor. – Ramhound Oct 25 '12 at 11:04
@Ramhound - it does?! I completely forgot about the i3 CPU having it's own graphics ability - these are the first ix laptops we have. – tombull89 Oct 25 '12 at 11:54
