    Refreshed Windows 8.1 SM BUS + PCI Simple Communications


    I refreshed my Windows 8.1 and Device Manager is saying these 2 drivers are not installed. Do these have something to do with my chipset, aka Asus Maximus VI Formula? If so, what exactly am I suppose to be downloading and installing?

    Is there any other devices I should be installed that refreshing has removed from my computer? (That's related to drivers like this).

    Those are with Chipset drivers. "PCI Simple Communications" is usually a modem (dial up most likely). Best tto get them from MB manufacturer's site.

PCI Simple Communications in Drivers & Hardware
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.
