PCI Simple Communications Controller

Hi Gang

I have an Optiplex 790 Mini Tower with Windows 7 Professional

I've loaded all available Chipsets but still have a Device Manager Conflict:

PCI Simple Communications Controller - Was looking on the Intell web page but can't locate the driver?

Thanks for your help :)

Hi Guys

I don't have a FAX nor Modem installed. I yanked that cheap sound card, un-installed the drivers. I installed a higher quaility PCIe sound card and there ya have it! All those CONFLICTS went away! The CULPRIT was a cheap/junk PCIe C Media Audio card. *There's a discussion here somewhere identifying the same issue with C Media Audio.

Thanks Guys!

Hi @CarpenterMate ,

It usually stand for Intel(R) Management Engine Interface driver. To locate it correctly,

  1. Open Device Manager
  2. Right-click on the PCI Simple Communications Controller and choose Properties
  3. Go to Details tab, roll down to Hardware ID

Once hardware ID located that something like this: 

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1C3A&SUBSYS_04AD1028&REV_04

You can then google it and see what hardware it actually stand for.

Hello Mr. Cowboy & Thank You

I don't think these are Intell Engine Drivers - looks like a cheap audio card I just installed. If I pull the darn card out and uninstall the cheap driver, replace it with a better card (with reliable drivers) will these conflicts go away?
