Hi Kathy. Did you just install Windows 7 on that laptop (or did it come pre-loaded with Windows 7)?

Quick guess answer:
I had the exact same issue on a laptop I installed Windows 7 on and the 3 Base Devices were taken care of by installing the single device driver from HP downloads for the 6-in-1 Card Reader. Did you install yours yet?

Longer answer:
  • Right click on each of the devices and choose Properties.
  • Go to the Details Tab > from the drop down menu > Choose Hardware IDs.
  • You will see a list of codes like this: PCI\VEN_10EC&DEV_8168&SUBSYS_82C61043&REV_02
  • Write the top one down.

Now go here:
PCI Vendor and Device Lists
  • And enter the PCI/VEN_ code into the manufacturer box and "Search" and you will get the manufacturer name. (eg: 10EC)
  • Then enter the DEV_ code into the Device Search box and "Search" and you will get the type of device. (eg: 8168)
  • With this information you can determine what kind of driver and where to look for it.
If you need more help just post the info you find here.
