Method 1: Update the driver via Device Manager

You can update the driver manually via Device Manager. Follow below steps:

1) In Device Manager, right click on the device name and select Properties. Then Properties Window will open.

2) In “General” tab, click Update Driver button. 

3) Click Search automatically for updated driver software. If Windows have drivers for the device, the driver will be updated automatically.

If Method 1 doesn’t work for you, try Method 2.

Method 2: Use Hardware Id to find the correct driver

Windows sometimes fails to provide the proper drivers. If your PCI Simple Communication Controller driver cannot be updated by using Windows, you can use its hardware id to find the right driver. Every device has its own hardware id, so does PCI Simple Communication Controller.

1) In Properties Window, click Details tab. 

2) Under “Property”, select Hardware Ids.

3) Right-click on the hardware id and click Copy. (If there are more than one values, copy the longest one.)

4) Copy and paste the hardware id to the browser you’re using. Use “hardware id+driver+Windows OS” to search the specific driver. The link with right result will always be listed on top of first result page. Then you can go to the link and follow instructions to download the driver.

If manually update the driver doesn’t work for you, try Method 3 to update the driver automatically.
