first we need to know what this device is.
what have you got in your PCI slots, and which ones have their drivers installed?

i.e. sound card, and modem or network card
but we need to know more specific details. we need to know the make and model of both.
because drivers for one device usually won't work for another device

open up the case and see what's written on the main chip of those cards
