I have a small factor dc7900 xp professional operating system. I have re formatted the machine and got most drivers. There are two in device manager:
pci simple controller
pci serial port
these are device codes in signed devices msinfo32 system information.
I have been on the web site, down loaded most drivers but some reason this issue is still here! i have read other threads an tried what they have said but the links when trying to download the file that has worked for others a message states system doesnt reach minimun requirments!
Please help scott

I suspect that the chipset driver will solve both problems. The drivers are here:
If the chipset driver does not solve both problems the Simple Communication Controller is the soft modem.
Hope this helps.

What do you mean the controller is just a soft modem? as in internet connection modem?
Please advise futher many thanks scott

These are most likely the Intel Active Client Manager HECI Device:
And the Intel AMT LMS/SOL device:

Found this thread searching for the correct drivers to solve the code 28 warnings concerning 2 devices (1) PCI Serial Port and (2) PCI Simple Communications Controller.
I also have the dc7900 CMT running Window7 Ultimate 64-bit.
Have already installed the chipset (assuming the 64-bit Vista option would work), and am hoping that you can verify which drivers I should try.

Have installed the drivers from your previous post.
Install process yielded a few warnings that the OS was not supported (Windows 7 Utlimate 6bit), though the drivers did install.
Status: The code 28 warnings for the 2 devices are now gone, as well as the original listings for these devices. That is, there is no longer a (1) PCI Serial Port or (2) PCI Simple Communications Controller listed in the Device Manager. Driver install added an INTEL AMT management and security utility that I don't see the purpose of.
In conclusion: Not sure this was a good solution, or recommendable for other users.

The other device can found under Serial ports: Intel's remote assistance SOL device.
If loading the appropriate drivers is not the correct solution, then I can't imagine what is.

I have installed both the AMT SOL & HECI drivers.
Do the driver installs need to be done in any particular order?

Thanks for the tip on the new location of these devices under ports.
And, thanks for the help otherwise. The only reason I expressed a bit of doubt about this as a solution for other users with the same OS (Windows 7 - 64bit) is because of the "unsupported" messages I received upon installing them â though I do hope they were "the appropriate drivers" as you say.

PCI Simple Communication Controller
