    Windows identifies hardware better

    Just an observation, replies not necessary. I have resurrected a Dell Inspiron N5010 from a few years ago, originally had Win7 on it. Going through Device Manager I see the Keyboard has been identified as from Lenovo. It works fine so no problem, just a curiosity as it never showed a brand name in Win7.
