Computer dc7700. Error PCI Simple COmmunication Controller in the device manager has a error.

Just installed Windows 7 64 bit.

 

Hardware ID of the PCI Simple Communications Controller Properties is

 

pci\ven_8086&DEV_2994&subsys_2802103C&REV_02

pci\ven_8086&DEV_2994&subsys_2802103c

pci\ven_8086&DEV_2994&cc_078000

pci\ven_8086&DEV_2994&cc_0780

...

What do I install to get rid of this warning on my dc7700 computer.

The simplest method would be to disable it in the Device Manager.

 

That device is the plain old telephone (POTS) modem. Most  people have no need for it. If you have need of it see below this sentence

 

The drivers are available here. Select your version of Windows 7, download the driver and install it.

Hi:

 

That driver is part of the Intel AMT hardware.

 

Installing the HECI driver should do the trick.

@Paul installing the chipset for the AMT didn't work so I just disabled it

Just letting anyone else know that Paul's (Vista Business HECI driver link DOES work. I installed using compatibility Windows XP (SP3) w/ Administrator. I also wanted to add that I am curently running Windows 8. I'm sure I will never need to use this driver, but it's just nice to have all my drivers installed.
