embarassing question device mngr hardware

In Win7100 64 how do I get into the device mngr hardware to see all the hardware I'm running so I can try and update a TV card? I never upgraded to vista so I'm so use to going into control/sys/device mngr/ hardware. Go easy on me I already said It's embarrasing. Thanks
