Click on the Details tab and select Hardware Ids and note down the VEN (Vendor) number and the DEV (device) number. These will tell you the manufacture and device of the unknown devices.

Examples:
VEN 1002 = ATI, 11AB = Marvell Yukon, 10EC = Realtek, 8086 = Intel

Do a search on google with the VEN and DEV numbers to locate the drivers needed.

Have you install all the drivers, from the drivers CD which came with the MOBO?
