    Welcome to the forum,

    That is the Intel management engine. Part of the chipset drivers, you want both of these drivers,

    I've been trying to sort that for months. I even asked the Tech Dept of the suppliers of the PC and they were no help. You solved it for me and so quickly, Thank You Very Much.

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.
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.
