    No, haven't run across that. What is exact model? As noted, reinstall Motherboard Chipset drivers. One thing they do is identify all the devices.

    The PCI encryption device, from what I find is Intel trusted platform. Does the Dell downloads for your system have this or something similar listed?

    If this is an older PC, it may be something that is not Win 10 (latest Version) compatible.

    I have a Dell inspiron 15 and just installed a SSD in it and done a clean install yet windows updates are not installing all the drivers.

    Currently
    I'm missing drivers for

    Pci data acquisition and signal processing controller
    Pci encryption/decryption controller
    Sm bus controller
    Unknown
    Unknown
    Usb2. 0 CRW

    The dell support assistant is not helping either

    HELP PLEASE

    Cheers Bart
    Hi bartjunited, did you install from MediaCreationTool, if so, it should bring you to 20H2. In your specs it says version 1803. If you have installed 20H2 take a look in Settings, Update and Security, View Optional Updates, Driver Updates.
    I assume whatever you are missing as a driver, will appear there.
    When I do clean installs, my Device Manager always come up with missing drivers, which are not downloaded instantly after the Windows is installed. For me this procedure works /until now/.
    Good luck

    Did clean install with Windows Media creation tool and did come up with the latest version of Windows but even after running Windows updates the drivers did not update so I had to manually update each one from the Dell site this is also the first time I have seen this happen and wonder whether there is any other way to do this

    Ok, thanks. Check please your optional driver updates - those aren't updating automatically but stay there, in the path I showed you above.

    Careful, some of them are very old. You have to do the research. I never use optional updates.

    FWIW.

    Not all, @Compumind. I, for example never install these five:

    But the next here with the tick, I have installed from optional driver updates. Otherwise, Device Manager come up with unknown devices, exclamation marks etc.

    All of that is spreading in time like the first hour after clean install. After that no issues

    @Ivan Petrov -

    I always get the latest drivers from the source, rather than using Optional Updates.
    Windows 10 should be able to pick up most of the basic ones upon install.

    FWIW
