SMBus Controller and PCI Simple Communications Problems

Q: SMBus Controller and PCI Simple Communications Problems

Hi there!

Well, I've more or less worked my way into a pickle that I haven't the first idea on how I did it. I've recently just formatted my hard drive and reinstalled Windows 7 Ultimate on my main 1TB drive and when I booted up and got to my Desktop, I got notices saying that my SMBus Controller and PCI Simple Communications Controller were out of date or just not working correctly. I have absolutely NO idea how to remedy this situation and I'm looking to this forum to see if anyone knows how to help.

Things I've tried:
-Allowing Windows to try to automatically find the drivers (As if...)
-Uninstalling both of the controllerrs from the Device Manager and rebooting as instructed in one of the Dell and Microsoft forums (Nothing happened...)
-I've tried looking up drivers for the devices and haven't found anything.

Now, the only thing to note about this is that I've got a Dell Inspiron 620 (pretty much just put the mobo into an Antec Nine Hundred case). A friend of mine had his computer Blue Screen and I attempted to fix (which worked; just a clean reinstall of Windows 7 and the such) and since then, I've gotten these error messages when I boot in Windows 7 and when I boot in Windows Vista.

Was there something I missed or am I just ridiculous and did something wrong? I appreciate all feedback, considering I'm new to this forum, I understand it may take awhile and I may be posting in the wrong thread, but I just need some help.

Overall Specs on my PC:
Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64bit
Intel i3-2100 - 3.10GHz
6GB of RAM DDR3
Nvidia GeForce 285 GTX
2 HDD's: 1TB w/ Windows 7; 300GB w/ Windows Vista(which I want to format for just a basic data drive used as an internal storage unit)

EDIT: The attachment is a Print Screen of my Device Manager and the 2 devices that won't respond.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: SMBus Controller and PCI Simple Communications Problems

and welcome to the Forum

how did you fit the Dell BTX motherboard into an ATX case? ?

If indeed you somehow did . . You can go to the Dell support site, enter your Service Tag Number and download the drivers. Be sure to use IE and do not use the Dell Download Manager!

Just download the driver file, save it to the desktop and double click to install

On the list of drivers, click on the driver file:



Then be sure the "For Single File Download via Browser is selected and click the Download Now button here:



Install the chipset driver first, then the modem driver

Acer Aspire 5820T

Hard drive blew so had to replace it and reinstall windows, however these two devices Network Controller and PCI Simple Communications Controller issues are not installed correctly with error message in Device Manager of (Code 28) for both.

I have installed all appropriate drivers from Download

these being:

Chipset Intel Chipset Driver 9.1.1.1024 2.3 MB 2010/04/08
Lan Atheros LAN Driver 1.0.0.33 4.6 MB 2010/06/23

Wireless LAN Atheros Wireless LAN Driver 8.0.0.259 21.1 MB 2010/04/08

However the only device that was activated correctly after installing these was the Network Adaptor.

I therefore have no internet on this machine due to these two devices not being activated.

Please help.

I have phoned Acer but unless I go to there Premium support number at 50p/min, they can't help me.

Hi there, this is my first post on the forum as I found this site while browsing on my iPod. Now why would I have to use my iPod when I have a beautiful new computer sitting in front of me? Well as the title says. I have no controllers, ergo, no Internet.

I bought it second hand, absolutely nothing wrong with it, I think he just might of went too far when he wiped it before giving it to me.

So, I came here hoping you guys could rescue me... I'm looking for the driver(s) I need, and I'm also wondering how I can manage to download them to my com if it's not online. I have;

I'm hoping that's all good, I read it all of my DxDiag. Thanks In advance for the help!

I found all the drivers at the Gigabyte website for Windows 7 64 bit including the ethernet controller. If you have access to another machine you could copy any drivers you need onto a USB flash drive then copy them to your machine.

In Device Manager it shows up as a hardware that has no drivers.
I searched on Google and Windows Update, but no drivers are there.
I also searched on my Dell drivers discs, but there's nothing there for PCI devices.
I was thinking maybe it was the Chipset driver, so I installed that, but apparently that wasn't the fix.

Anyone know where to find a driver or fix for this thing?

A:What is the PCI Simple Communications Controller?

Sounds like a device windows couldn't properly identify. Does that laptop have a dial up modem in it? If yes does it show up correctly in device manager. If not install the drivers for it and see if that removes the PCI simple communications device entry. It could also be something else that hasn't had its driver installed. Onboard NIC, wifi, or maybe bluetooth. I'm just guessing at the moment. If you look at the properties for that device you may be able to find a hardware id number that you could Google to better nail it down.

I suddenly get messages telling me on start up that new hard ware has been found. I am then told to install drivers for it. In the device manager there is a yellow exclamation mark next to this PCI device. Can I simply disable this? I can't even find out what this is.  Thanks

A:pci simple communications controller

It's normally a dial-up modem. If there's a dial-up port integrated on the system mainboard but it has not been being used, it might just have become enabled somehow in the BIOS. If this is the case, and you do not use dial-up, you could go into the BIOS setup screen (there's usually directions on screen at boot up), and disable the on-board modem. The OS will then no longer find the hardware. Disabling the device in Device Manager is an alternative.
 
One reason for new hardware suddenly being found is if the CMOS backup battery has gone flat and the BIOS settings have been lost and reverted to default. If you have noticed any other hints such as the clock being wrong, it might be a good idea to replace the backup battery. Usually it is a lithium button cell (commonly CR20320 located in a holder on the mainboard.

A:Looking for PCI Simple Communications Controller

Have you tried going to the Gateway site Gateway Support - Drivers, Software and Firmware Updates And entering your serial # in order to find drivers for your system? The number is usualy located next to the Genuine Windows OS sticker on the rear of your tower, or bottom of your laptop. Unless this is an add on card you installed yourself or had installed. In that case we will need to know the manufacturer and model number of the controller. You can also try going to device manager.clicking on the controller>update driver>and have windows search for one. If Gateway doesn't have a windows seven driver a 64bit Vista driver might work in compatiblility mode Fabe Compatibility Mode

Those devices are part of the "Remote Management" feature -- a centralized system-administrator on a corporate network can access the computer, and make updates. Have you run the "HP Support Assistant"?It should find the missing 'AMT' device-drivers. Of course, if you are the only "administrator", you do not need to install that support -- your computer will work fine without it.

Windows XP SP2

Control Panel->System->Hardware->Device Manager->Other->PCI Simple Communications Controller shows Code 28. The 2 CDROM drives attached to PCI1 are not recognized and their drivers show not installed. The 2 hard drives attached to PCI0 work fine.

This, of course, used to work. Must have been bad for a while since System Restore doesn't save enough restore points to go back and correct. I use the CDROM drives rarely.

Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty Fawn shows the CDROM drives so not a hardware problem.

Help! Thanks, in advance.

Dave

I've just brought a new comp and I have every driver installed (I think) except the pci simple communications controller. What the hell is this thing? So far, I haven't seen any bug on the windows but I just want to be on the safe side.

can anyone help me find the driver for this? Here're my comp specs:

A:pci simple communications controller issue

the last time i heard the phrase 'pci simple communications controller' was for an oldskool dial-up modem.

i would be very surprised if you had one in your new machine though...

have a look at this tutorial - Device Manager - Finding Unknown Devices.
