The above solution only works if there are drivers installed and they are the correct ones.

If you don't have the drivers installed you can use Everest to identify the devices. In Everest look under Devices and then Physical Devices.

There's also one method that seems to be overlooked too often that is quite easy. And that is taking the side of the computer and looking and teh device you wish identify - most will have a sticker or label or an identifying chip.

Seriously! Why doesn't anybody ever think to do that? Lol.
