I have installed Windows 7 Enterprise on a Dell e6500 and cannot find drivers for the PCI Serial Port and PCI Simple Communications Controller. I tried the Vista drivers on Dell Driver downloads site and after attempting to install them, I get an error saying that they are incompatible with the OS. Any suggestions as to where I can find compatible drivers?

A:PCI Serial Port and PCI Simple Communications Controller Drivers for Windows 7 Enterprise

I actually contacted Dell about the issue and they told me that they did not support Windows 7 until October 22nd. After the initial install failed, I tried to update the driver and searched the folder created by the failed installation. It found a driver it liked and installed it. I guess the incompatibility was with the .exe file and not the driver itself. Here is the link for the drivers: http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=bsdr&catid=&impid=&os=WNET&osl=en&SystemID=LAT_E6500 They are both under Vista 32-bit Chipset: Intel_AMT-HECI_A00_R192786.exe Intel_AMT-SOL-LMS_A00_R192787.exe As of now, all drivers are installed and working properly.

Just did a fresh install of Win7 64 bit Home with the help of a Microsoft Tech. The pc seems to be working fine and still doing tons of windows updates.

When I went to check my device manager I saw the yellow icon in Other devices > serial Ata controller. I tried updating the driver and it said one was not available?

I do not know if this would help but my HD is a Hitachi HDT725025VLA380 I also tried uploading drivers for that and it said those were up to date.

Any ideas? Do I need it?

I just plan to load the HD with the OS and software and clone it to a hybrid HD and just keep the 250 as a back up.

Could the hd be causing this?

What I have also done is install my original working HD that had a software burner issue that could not be fixed and checked the device manager > other devices > serial ata controller and it showed that the Silicon Image SIL3132 SATA Link Controller driver was installed on that and was working correctly.

I did try downloading that from my My Dell drivers and it shows that it was installed but did not fix the issue. Also went to the Silicon Image driver site and I could not figure what driver I needed.

Hi: For the PCI Serial Port you need this driver... This package contains the Intel Local Management Service (LMS) and Serial-over-LAN (SOL) support for Intel Active Management Technology (AMT) for the supported desktop models and operating systems. This software is part of the Intel Digital Office Initiative. ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp46001-46500/sp46134.exe Please post the hardware ID for the PCI Unknown device you are missing the driver for. To find the hardware ID, go to the device manager and click on the unknown device needing the driver. Then click on the Details tab at the top of the device window. Now you will see a Property drop down list, and it will be set to Device Description. Drop down on that list and select the 3rd item (Hardware ID's). Post the top string of characters that you see in the window.

Hello! I have a HP m7250n Media Center computer (Windows XP MCE) with the latest BIOS upgraded from the HP web site installed. Having has some unrelated software issues in the past, I decided to reformat my drive (after backing up all my data) using the built in system restore.

One of the issues that I was hoping to resolve was access to the Com1 port. Unfortunately, even after a factory refresh it is still not available. After doing some Google research and testing on the PC, I suspect a hardware problem. Using System Information, under Hardware Resources > IRQs, there is no IRQ 4 for Com1. In addition, under Components > Ports > Serial, there is no information listed.

I saw some postings about making changes in the BIOS setup, but I do not see any specific settings in question.

Any suggestions or advice is appreciated.

First two are from Intel AMT (Management Engine), and the last one is because you have a SAS controller installed. It should most probably be the 9217; but can be a 9212 as well. Do you know the configuration of your system? For the first two, if you are not using Intel AMT, you can disable the same from BIOS : Got to BIOS by pressing F10 when the system powers up, and go to "Advanced" --> "AMT Configuration" and disable the same. If you don't want to disable the same, please install this: http://h20566.www2.hp.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?sp4ts.oid=5225038&swItemId=wk_116019_1&swEnvOid=405... If you don't know which SAS controller you are using, please post a pic of the card, where the label on the card is visible. If you know the SAS controller model, you can install the driver from "Driver - Storage" section of this page: http://h20566.www2.hp.com/hpsc/swd/public/readIndex?sp4ts.oid=5225038&swLangOid=8&swEnvOid=4059 Thanks,Sasi

I am trying to fix young grandson's computer. He bought a refurbished Dell Optiplex 760 with Win7. He did not have any sound speaker installed so do not know if he had sound then. His mother  upgraded from win7 to win10. Later when she plugged in a speaker there was no sound. The Device Manager shows yellow thingy indicating  PCI serial port.  I assume this means it is missing that driver.
I have been going in circles trying to find this PCI driver. Dell's site does not have this driver for win10. I did find 1 or 2 sites that I THINK had it, but was unable to open. All kinds of red tape and wanting me to pay for it etc.   One had a .rar file extension that would not open no mater what I tried. I thought winzip could do it... but no. 
I have tried unsuccessfully for several hours! Can anyone provide a driver download or at least a link to exact link where I won't get caught in a crazy maze to open it?  I appreciate any help you can give.

I recently upgraded a DELL Optiplex 790 to windows 10 and promptly lost the PCI Serial Port drivers. Now my PCIe slots are no longer functional. 
I understand that this computer is no longer supported by dell, however, I am hoping that someone did the upgrade successfully and can help direct me as to what I can do to fix the issue. 



A:Optiplex 790 PCI Serial Port Drivers Missing

Windows 10 does not install ANY driver that isnt 64 bit and WHQL Certified.
You need Microsoft WHQL certified drivers for windows 10 for your PCI serial card.
The PCI-E serial card is not from dell and not supported here.

You have to disable the driver signature enforcement in Windows 10
which makes your system vulnerable to malware.
Press the Win + C and click on PC settings.
Switch over to the “Update & recovery” section.

Then click on the Recovery option on the left hand side.

Once selected, you will see an advanced startup section appear on the right hand side. You will need to click on the “Restart now” button.

Once your Computer has rebooted you will need to choose the Troubleshoot option.

Then head into Advanced options.
Then Startup Settings.

Since we are modifying boot time configuration settings, you will need to restart your computer one last time.

Here you will be given a list of startup settings that you can change. The one we are looking for is “Disable driver signature enforcement”. To choose the setting, you will need to press the F7 key.

I had to change the motherboard to another brand and restored an image from the older Windows7 installation which used AHCI. I can boot using IDE in the BIOS and I noticed that the 'standard ahci 1.0 serial ata controller' is missing in the device manager. The registry for msahci.sys is fine and set to 0.

When I switch to AHCI in the BIOS, Windows doesn't boot. It's stuck at "starting Windows" screen. I get the same problem when I try to boot from the DVD and do a repair.

How do I install the AHCI driver so that 'standard ahci 1.0 serial ata controller‏' shows up? I have all kinds of boot disks like Erd Commander, BartPE, Ultimate Boot CD, Active Boot CD which could help?

Hi All,

My problem is, i have to read/write a text file from/to a desktop machine to the handheld device, which is connected through serial port of desktop machine.

please help me anyone to find out the solution of it.

I have tried to connect the device to the desktop machine but how to read a specified file which is on desktop location from here.


A:Reading/Writing data from/To Handheld device which is connected through serial port

Do you want the device to read a file from the PC or the PC to send a file to the device? These two approaches are fundamentally different.

If you want the device to read that file without user interaction, then you have to write a special device driver or a monitor program that would listen for requests from your device and provide the file.

Hi having huge problems with this PC and posting this question as a last resort. PC Crashed with a start up error on windows 10. Sadly we never created the USB recovery media so had to install a fresh OS. Not too conerned because we had a full back up of the PC on the server which we though we could use to recover the PC.However when using the USB client backup key to boot the PC cannot find the server on the network. In the standard boot up the PC can ping the server plus is can connect to the internet. We have even tried using a USB to ethernet device thinking its the network card that has a problem. Only thing i can think it is now is that we are missing two drivers on the device manager. 1. PCI Serial Port2. PCI Simple Communications ControllerThrough research everyone says it to do with the chipset drivers. So ihave used the intel driver update utility and installed all missing driviers. I have also installed HP chipset drivers from the HP website btru still nothing. Has anyone got an idea of what i am doing wrong. I really think this PCI driver is my problem in ordet to do the full restore of the client backup.

I recently acquired an Optiplex 790 with an i5 2400 3.1GHz processor, 8GB of ram, a PNY 125GB SSD. and a Hitachi 1TB HDD. 
I installed a clean copy of windows 10 on it and all went well except the PCIe Slots wouldn't recognize my TV tuner card. 
After a looking into it I found the that the PCI Serial Port driver is missing and that this may be the most likely cause of my issue. 
To fix it I took the following steps:
1. Downloaded and intstalled the latest chipset drivers from the DELL website. These drivers are labelled for windows 10 use 
2. Down loaded this driver DRVR_WIN_R296702.EXE for the foxconn PCIe add in card driver.
3. Reinstalled windows 10 to see if the drivers would automatically update. 
Unfortunately none of that worked, the only other option i see is to possibly run the fox conn driver install in compatibility mode, but I worry that it won't work. 
Another possiblity is to install windows 7 install all the needed drivers, then install windows 10 over top to see if that fixes it. Or leave widows 7 as is. 
Has anyone else experienced this problem and resolved it? If so how? 
Has anyone been able to upgrade fully without issue?

That driver is not foxconn.
It is also likely that you need to install CHIPSET drivers before PCI or PCI-E devices are "seen". Note that WT64 is WINDOWS 10

Hi I would consider As an adminstrator, in a Command Prompt Window, typegetmacThis will list MAC addresses for those items that are present, and may not be connected.A good number would be 3,1 x Ethernet1 x Wi-Fi1 x Bluetoothand then typeipconfigand in the long list look for named devices have a matching MAC address.Along with Device manager this is a way to determine the number of devices. Device Manager has a VIEW: Show hidden devices, and it may be in there.

Computer: Dell OPTIPLEX 755
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium (x64)
Problem: Missing PCI Serial Port
Fixes tried:

AMD Radeon HD 2400 XT Graphics Driver Driver Details | Dell Australia (AMD Radeon HD 2400 XT Graphics Driver), complains that it is a multidisk installer and needs the last part to be inserted.

Intel G31/G33/Q33/Q35 Graphics Controller, v., A05 Driver Details | Dell Australia (Intel G31/G33/Q33/Q35 Graphics Controller, v., A05), complains that it is a multidisk installer and needs the last part to be inserted.

Intel Matrix Storage Manager (OS Pre-Install Driver Only), v., A12 Driver Details | Dell Australia (Did not give a specific setup installer, just installed a bunch of files.)

Intel AMT HECI, v. PV, A02 Driver Details | Dell Australia (Used this to fix another error, worked for that one. Did not work for this one.)

When ever I scan for hardware changes in devmgmt.msc, it attempts to install the PCI serial port but is never successful.

Properties of the PCI Serial Port in the unknown devices section of devmgmt.msc shows this:

The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28)

There is no driver selected for the device information set or element.
To find a driver for this device, click Update Driver.

Any and all help is appreciated, thanks!

Are you actually using (or want to use) the serial port? If not, disable it in the BIOS, then the error will go away.
