Please verify that this vendor ID of "1" is reported verbatim.

If it is really '1' and not 0x10ec you should ask Trendware what bus this
card is for, because it's not a valid PCI device.

Trendware is *not* vendor ID #1.  The initial PCI vendors were assigned
vendor IDs starting at 0x1000, with only a few vendor IDs lower than this.

Perhaps you have a card with a flawed EEPROM.
