ASUS p8p67 LE and device manager


I have a ASUS P8P67 LE with an i5 2400 and 2gb of kingston hyperX blu 1600mhz ram running at 1333.

In my device manager I see the following "Other Devices" with yellow exclamation points next to them:

1. PCI Simple Communications controller

2. Universal Serial Bus (USB) Controller

The second one I have determined is the USB 3.0 controller. I am able to disable it in the bios and this goes away. I choose not to install the driver because I have no USB 3.0 devices.

The 1st item (PCI simple comm controller) is what's really got me concerned...

Even with marvell controller and usb 3.0 disabled in bios I still get the first item.

How can I determine what the heck this is? I search for via right clicking on the 1st item and windows finds nothing. I have opened my group policy and device installation permissions to allow windows to install crap. I have already done a clean install and saw the items pop up after a fresh install with grpahics, lan, chipset, and audio drivers installed. Not sure what to do about this item.

  1. Go to Intel's Download Center and search for Intel Management Engine. The top result should be version dated 5/24/2011. Download and install it.
  2. Will do, I also noticed in the bios that in the device boot order I have three things listed although I only have two devices.

    My two devices I have plugged in are a HDD (SATA) and a DVD (SATA).

    The third extra device listed has a UEFI label on it and is called the Windows Boot Loader or windows loader something I can't remember. Will look again at it tonight, but is this normal?
