I finished installing all the latest drivers, but this PCI Simple Communications Controller still vexes me. I have no idea what it is. When I right click on it and click install latest drivers from the internet, it says cannot find anything. Does anyone have an idea as to what driver I might need to fix this?

Im gonna guess you have an asus motherboard? if so alot of them require a driver that is labeled this

"Intel Management Engine Interface V6.0.0.1179 for 32/64bit Windows XP & Windows Vista & Windows 7"

or something close to it....go to the webpage for your board go to downloads and go to utilities you will find that there.

probably a different board but this gives you the idea.....

My motherboard is the Asus Maximus V Formula. Do you think it is this one Management Engine Interface V8.0.0.1262 for Windows XP/7 32bit & 64bit---(WHQL).? But what is this driver. What purpose does it serve? To enable a PCI lane?

if I remember correctly it is something that allows like remote access or something to help fix problems...it is not necessary for anything to function so you could go without it but if you are like me it will drive you nuts to have the yellow exclamation *** in device manager...and yea the one you typed sounds right

Yes it is driving me nuts. Some of my start menu and quick launch icons are already corrupted and the software on this computer is not even a day old :pfff:  . Sigh being a perfectionist has its downfalls.
