Missing PCI Simple Communications Controller

Hi, I can't install the updates on my desktop because my newly formatted PC won't connect to the internet. I don't know what's the problem maybe I'm missing some drivers. So I checked the Device Manager, reinstall the network driver. Still no luck. But on other devices, PCI Simple Communications Controller has a yellow triangle on it. Here's the screenshot

I don't know what to do so my PC can connect to the internet thank you and good day!

Have you installed the chipset drivers for your motherboard?

Desk 1: Win 7 Pro x32; Desk 2: Windows 10 x64

Those are two different problems.

Re: your missing pci simple controller driver - you want the Intel Management Engine driver (s/b listed among chipset drivers on your computer vendor web site)

For your network problem, suggest you create a new thread under Networking and see the sticky in that forum on the information you should include in your first post
