How can I figure out what device these drivers are for or just what drivers I need?

(shoot, didn't see the Driver section until after I posted this. Mod please move)

In this case, you will have to manually install the chipset drivers. what motherboard you have?
you can find it by going to device manager and expand System Devices.

or download this small utility and click on motherboard.

Ok download the  Intel® Chipset Identification Utility and then run it as administrator to identify what chipset you have.
