Triton 500- PCI Drivers Missing after Clean Windows 10 Install

extremeheat Member Posts: 8


Hey guys, 

I did a clean install of Windows 10 and now I have some devices under device manager which are not being recognized due to drivers missing. I did force Windows update to look for the drivers but no luck. The devices are: 
1) PCI Data Acquisition and Signal Processing Controller (Device PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_A379&SUBSYS_132D1025&REV_10\3&11583659&0&90)
2) PCI Device (Device PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_A324&SUBSYS_132D1025&REV_10\3&11583659&0&FD)
3) PCI Simple Communications Controller (Device PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_A360&SUBSYS_132D1025&REV_10\3&11583659&0&B0)
4) SM Bus Controller (Device PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_A323&SUBSYS_132D1025&REV_10\3&11583659&0&FC)

1) Do I even need to resolve these; will they cause any operational deficiency if I leave it as is? If so, then which Acer drivers should I install from the Acer Driver/Software page to resolve this?
2) My WavesMax is not working anymore, i.e. it keeps saying the default audio devices are not supported. Which audio driver can I install from Acer or otherwise to solve this cause the audio is really flat and low from the laptop speakers without the waves max working.
3) I typically do a windows 10 reset from the Acer provided image (not a clean Windows 10 install using the media creation tool). But because I kept having some other problems which were not being resolved, I did a clean install. Is there any other issues that I may face due to this clean install? (I already downloaded Predator Sense to manage GPU overclocking etc).

    Sorry one more thing! My Windows Update after this clean install keeps saying: A current driver on your PC may be better than the driver we're trying to install. We'll keep trying to install.

    Anytime I force check a Windows update, it keeps trying to download and install the latest 2021-02 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 20H2 for x64-based Systems (KB4601319) even though it is already installed.
