    PCI Simple Communications Controller


    Does anyone know what this is and where I might find a driver for it? It never popped up when I initially installed Win 8 RP but I had to do a refresh and now I have this in device manager. I have tried every driver on the mother board install disk with no success.

    On my X79 based system, that was fixed after I installed the Intel Management Engine drivers. Asrock offers that for your motherboard.

I know there was a similar post to this, but I'm not sure how to fix it. Having an issue with PCI driver compatibility. It's made by Intel, and all the auto updates don't work. If you can help me with the Bluetooth issue too, bonus points.
