"pci simple communications controller" HP dc 7800

I have a questionmark in the device manager saying this.

I saw some other threads regarding this issue, but they all suggested modem and I don´t have a modem.

Operatingsystem is XP by the way (came with Vista, but I made a clean XP install).

I have downloaded most of the drivers from the driverpage but I can´t find anything that seems to match this one.

Anyone know what this is?

Re: "pci simple communications controller" HP dc 7800

If this is a CMT model HP states you have the Agere modem.

with certain models of PC it also can be:

Intel Local Management Service (LMS) and
Serial-over-LAN (SOL) support for Active Management Technology (AMT)

Well, I´m not sure what a "soft"-modem is, but since everything pointed towards modem I have allready tried installing that (twice) but with no succes!

Re: "pci simple communications controller" HP dc 7800

There is another way of getting you the proper driver.


Check your device manager.

In XP, you can look up the device name in the device manager.


Control Panel > System (icon) > hardware (tab) > Device Manager

If there is a yellow mark right click it, select Properties, Details tab...

You Will find a string like this one:

PCI\VEN_1102&DEV_0007&SUBSYS



copy and paste the entire string ....

VEN_ is the vendor and DEV_ is the device model number ...

with that string we can also double check the proper driver.

Re: "pci simple communications controller" HP dc 7800

Thanks, but it didn´t work.

However it might be that it´s not possible to solve it. Just saw that this is not Windows XP but Windows 2003 server. The XP-drivers normally work, but in this case it might not.

I got the message "Your system does not meet the minimum requirements to install ..." when i tried to install, so I started to wonder ..

So, maybe we have to leave it at that? Or does anybody know about 2003-drivers for this machine.

Rune

As Windows Server 2003 is not a supported OS for the dc7800 you will need to find the drivers other than from HP.

If Rich is correct that this is an Intel management driver you may try Intel.

Hope this helps.

Re: "pci simple communications controller" HP dc 7800

I looked for a Win 2003 on HP but didn't find one.

You might try intel.com

Re: "pci simple communications controller" HP dc 7800

This is an old thread, but I had the same issue.
For our dc7800's, the device was
Intel Active Client Manager HECI Device
The driver (for Vista) is here:
