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.
