Click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll through all of your devices

or for windows 7 click start right click on computer select properties in the left pane device manager scroll through all of your devices.


If you see a yellow question or exclamation mark ? ! or a red X you will need to update the drivers for this device right click select update driver/reinstall driver software.


If you can see your usb device but its not working scroll to Ports(Com&Ltd) right click to update driver

If you computer came with a motherboard disk the drivers could be on it


or you might have to download them

Rather doing a driver hunt which can take hours.

This might take some time being a freeware driver solution


Note: The Driver program will find all of your outdated drivers


This will automatically search for and find the correct driver you will have to update every driver individually once you update you might be asked whether you want to restart or make a system restore point.


Click no to both of these then continue updating each driver free then restart once all of the drivers have been updated.


also at cnet

http://download.cnet.com/2000-20_4.html

on the home page you should see a search tab just type in what you are looking for


IE: Motherboard name sound drivers.


Place a tick in either windows software or all software box.


You might have to try a few times to get it right.

I recently formatted a second harddrive on my dimension L933r to download windows 7 all works fine but i can not change screen resolution and now i can not find the drive for the pci simple communications...


Hello.

Not certain if you still need this, but ...

To find and install the driver for the simple communications controller:

Go to Device Manager and click on the pci simple communications controller


Go to Properties and then Details. You will see a code like PCI/VEN_8086&DEV_27D8&SUBSYS...
The VEN code means vendor and the DEV code means device: in the example the vendor is 8086 and the device is 27D8.

Once you have the two codes, go to www.pcidatabse.com. Enter the two codes and you should get the name of your hardware.

From there, you can search for a driver download for your hardware

Hope this helps.

PCI Slot 1 (PCI bus 1, device 10, function 0)


Hi there,looks like your devices need updates to function correctly,

from devices manager,
select the device with the yellow question,
right click and click on update
even if you have no disk or internet
let the wizard find the drivers automatically
should be preinstalled with your OS XP
go thru your list and update any other question marks in yellow.

Should be able to update the network device on this system and then connect to the internet to finish anything else

The reason for these 2 big question marks is that Windows device drivers for the sound card & modem are not installed.

PCI Simple Communications Controller


Hi, I have a solution. If you go in device manager, click on the pci simple communications controller, go in property and then go in details. You will see a code like per example PCI/VEN_8086&DEV_27D8&SUBSYS...

The VEN code means vendor and the DEV code means device: in my case the vendor is 8086 and the device is 27D8.

Once you have the two codes, go to www.pcidatabase.com. Enter the two codes and you should get the name of your
hardware. From there you can search for a driver download for your hardware.

In my case the pci simple communications controller was a Microsoft UAA Bus HD audio. I also had another pci
device that didn't work properly, using the same method I found out that my pci device was an HSF PCI internal modem with code number CX11252-11. I had a hard time downloading one of the drivers, after 6 or 7 times the download started so be patient if you have the same hardware
.
NOTE: to access the device manager, go in control panel, then performance and maintenance, system, hardware and finally device manager.

Hopefully this helps you, good luck.
