In case PCI Data Acquisition and Signal Processing Controller is present under Other Devices and has a yellow exclamation mark beside it, it shows there’s something wrong with the network driver.
This is one problem that many users have reported recently. If you are facing this problem too, this post is just for you.
So what does this error means?
It usually signifies there’s something wrong with the network connection. But there’s nothing to worry about, as it doesn’t take much to solve the issue.
The first thing you should do when you come across a yellow exclamation mark in the device manager is to update device drivers. We recommend you to install drivers only from genuine resources. One such resource is laptop support website.
- Browse to the support site and then search for drivers for your laptop by searching in the software or drivers section
- You are likely to see a number of drivers; pay attention to chipset driver and network card driver
- Select the appropriate operating system
- Finally, click the Download button
- Once the download process is complete, install drivers one by one
- Reboot Windows for the changes to take effect
Sometimes, the chipset driver is in form of .inf file. This may pose some problems for certain users, but don’t worry we will show exactly how to install such drivers. The driver software we’re using for demonstration is Intel Chipset Device Software.
Note: It is very much possible that your chipset driver may have a completely different name. That’s ok. PC manufacturers often customize intel chipset in order to have it meet the specifications of their computers. In case you don’t wish to give up any customized feature, we recommend you download chipset from your computer manufacturer.
- Download the relevant chipset driver for your computer and save it in a suitable location
- Press Win + R keys simultaneously to launch the run dialog box
- Type devmgmt.msc and then press Enter
- In the Device Manager window, locate and double-click PCI data Acquisition and Signal Processing Controller. You will find it under Other devices category
- Click the Driver tab
- Click Update Driver
- Select the second option in the list – Browse my computer for driver software
- Navigate to the location where you have stored the driver file and then click Next
- Wait for the chipset driver to get installed
- Restart PC (if required)
In case you don’t want to go through the whole process described above, you should strongly consider getting a reliable driver update software too.
We recommend DriverDownloader because it is fast and efficient and reliable to boot. In a matter of couple of minutes, the software will update your chipset driver.
