Exclamation help need drivers for "other devices" no disks with computer

Due to many problems I had to wipe the drive. I am using an acer aspire ax1200, Athalon 64 Dual Core 4400+ 2.30 GHz RAM 2.00GB, 32-bit Operating System using Windows Vista Business sp 1 because I cannot update until I get my internet back.

The other devices needing drivers are Coprocessor, Ethernet Controller, PCI Simple Communications Controller and SM Bus Controller. Device Type is other devices for all of them and Manufacturer Unknown

I went to the Acer driver website and none of these appeared. Please help! Thanks

Try using the European side of the Acer site; they seem to have better driver downloads for some reason.

the nvidia chipset driver will take are of them. i'm not positive about the co-processor one, but the sm bus controller and the lan are both rolled into the nvidia chipset driver as well a a couple more.

Thanks, InfiniteLoop, I was coming to that conclusion. I upadated using the Nivida chipset. The only one that did not update was this which, as you can see I found more info on. Any suggestions for this:
PCI Simple Communications Controller
PCI\VEN_11C1&DEV_0630&SUBSYS_063011C1&REV_01
PCI\VEN_11C1&DEV_0630&SUBSYS_063011C1
PCI\VEN_11C1&DEV_0630&CC_078000
PCI\VEN_11C1&DEV_0630&CC_0780

simple communications controller is usually a modem, sometimes software modem sometimes a real modem.
