When I go to my device manager it has 3 yellow ?'s by my pci drivers I have no clue what they are and the automatic update can read them. How do I figure out what my pci drivers are?

1. Open Device Manager (Control Panel>System>Hardware>Device Manager)
2. The hardware whose drivers are missing will appear as Unknown device, so it's easier to locate the device.
3. Right click on the unknown device and click on Properties.
4. Under the Properties window click on Details tab and select Device Instance Id from the drop down box.
5. You should see a code similar to this

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_27DC&SUBSYS_30868086
&REV_01\4&1E46F438&0&40F0

6. The portion of the code highlighted in RED is the Vendor ID and the portion highlighted in GREEN is the Device ID. In this example:

Vendor ID = 8086
Device ID = 27DC

7. Once you have obtained both the IDs, proceed to PCI Database. There you can either search for the vendor from the vendor ID or directly get information about the device along with the vendor name by searching with the device ID.

8. Then from there you can go directly to the hardware manufactureres website and get the driver.

Ok I had to update my motherboard drivers was all. Now my pci drivers are being read, but I am having problems with my crossfire and video cards my pc runs fine during movies but as soon as I start actual gameplay my pc locks up my VPU recover kicks in and resets my graphics processor. My graphic drivers have the newest drivers would going backwards be a better option? I have ver 9.6 currently.
