Installed new OS and then installed the drivers from driver disk in correct order, however, the PCI Simple Communications Controller Driver is missing and does not appear to be on the driver cd and I have had no luck on the Internet.
Here is the info for driver ID:
Location: PCI bus 0, device 22, function 0
Solved! Go to Solution.
Go to support.dell.com, Drivers and Downloads, enter your Service Tag (or select your model), and install all the "chipset" drivers.
The chipset drivers did not work for me. Thanks to a wonderful DELL support person (John Paul) he was able to get the file called infinst_autol.zip from Intel's web site. Try using this if the chipset drivers do not work.
Let me know if it works.
PCI\VEN_8086 This is INTEL
DEV_1C3A "Intel(R) AMT Management Engine Interface"
DIRECT FROM INTEL ZIP version here.
This worked for me. I had installed a "newer" version, and nothing would work. So, I installed this one. I got the "You already have a newer version, are you sure?" message. I said yes because I had tried everything else I could think of and VIOLA!
Thought I'd let others know.
My machine is an XPS L702X with the 2nd generation i7 and the the series 6 chipset if that ever helps anyone.
