I suspect you can't, as Dell, HP and others are really assembling parts from other manufacturers, and there is probably no way to find in the hardware the final vendor name.

No, and that was my point.
lspci give you Intel, ATI, Realtek and the likes, while pvnraju is expecting HP or Dell.

Usually the BIOS will have the vendor name in it somewhere, but it depends on the BIOS as to where it is located.

Maybe this will help.

jlliagre, that kinda looks like vendor and hardware info on my box.
I found a list on the net which shows what vendor id goes with what company. For example, 0x8086 is Intel. I have used that info to find out what nic or video card is installed so a person can look for drivers.


pci bus 0x0000 cardnum 0x00 function 0x00: vendor 0x8086 device 0x7124
Intel Corp. 82810E DC-133 GMCH [Graphics Memory Controller Hub]

pci bus 0x0000 cardnum 0x01 function 0x00: vendor 0x8086 device 0x7125
Intel Corp. 82810E DC-133 CGC [Chipset Graphics Controller]

pci bus 0x0000 cardnum 0x1e function 0x00: vendor 0x8086 device 0x2418
Intel Corp. 82801AA PCI Bridge

pci bus 0x0000 cardnum 0x1f function 0x00: vendor 0x8086 device 0x2410
Intel Corp. 82801AA ISA Bridge (LPC)

pci bus 0x0000 cardnum 0x1f function 0x01: vendor 0x8086 device 0x2411

You miss the point, it is not the PCI parts vendors the OP asks for.
What he wants is the name of the manufacturer that bundle the whole and sell it under its own brand, different from the PCI cards your command shows.
